A diode match finder circuit has input voltage of 2.6v and output voltage is 5.78v. Calculate the voltage drop across diode 1N4735

(a) 2.22v

(b) 8.38v

(c) 3.18v

(d) 15.02v

I had been asked this question by my college director while I was bunking the class.

My question is based upon Voltage to Current Converter with Floating and Grounded Load in section Operational Amplifier Applications of Linear Integrated Circuits

Accurate answer is (c) 3.18v

Delve into insight with: The output voltage Vo =Vin+ VD.

∴ the voltage drop across 1N4735,  VD =Vo – Vin = 5.78-2.6 =3.18v.
