Question

# When a forward is applied to a p-n junction, then what happens to the potential barrier $$V_{B}$$ and the width of charge depleted region x

A
VB increases , x decreases
B
VB decreases ,x increases
C
VB increase , x increases
D
VB decreases ,x decreases

Solution

## The correct option is D $$V_{B}$$ decreases ,$$x$$ decreasesThe forward bias voltage opposes the potential barrier. Due to this, the potential barrier is reduced and hence the depletion layer becomes thin. The conduction across p-n junction takes place due to migration of majority carriers from one region to another. Hence, in forward biasing both $$V_B$$ and $$x$$ decreases.Physics
