but I had a query?

That is in diode internal resistance is nothing but the internal voltage of 0.7(si) and 0.3(ge) which is constant. Then why it is solved by ohm's law?

We can see in the characteristics of a diode. It's slope (1/R) increases on increasing current, thus it means that are will decrease.

When forward current increase then due to power dissipation some temp increase due to temp more electrons and holes created due to this majority charge carriers increase some amount so so conductivity increase so resistivity decrease resistance decrease.

Dynamic resistance is the same as linear resistance true or false?

Please tell me.

Actual reason for this answer.

Semiconductors are having negative temperature coefficient so when current increases due to this temperature also increase and because of this resistance decreases.

Diode has dynamic resistance that is reason increasing in I cause to decrease in R.

In diode internal resistance (i.e Rd = 0.7 ohm) will be same for all current.

Kumar prabhat said:   9 years ago
Relation between R and I is inversely proportional. Diode current increases so resistance decreases.

I think the internal resistance must be the same but only the actual resistance changes.

It's a fact that when resistance decrease, (act as an obstacle) current increase.
