Pit, help me please.

if a silicon diode (assume forward voltage drop of 0.7 V) and a 330 kOhm resistor are in parallel what is the current through the 330 kOhm resistor?

I'm fairly certain the voltage drop across R1 is 2V if thats any help. I keep thinking this is a trick question, but I'm stumped and I'm lazy right now... so pit, help me please!

Gah, I'm usually not bad at electronics, I'm going to study electrical engineering at uni next year...but I'm doped up on antihistamines right now so I really can't be bothered to do anything intellectual...plus maths/science thread?

There's a maths science thread? Well, I'll be damned..
Yeah this is revision for my first year exams for engineering I'm not usually bad either.

Yeah, it used to be just maths questions help and stuff but it's now expanded to science questions and stuff. Link:

I can't believe I've never seen that before. I'll try asking there if I don't get any help in this thread.

It's a shame I can't post this in the gear customizing thread because there are a few electronics experts there.

throwing it into the simulator.....1.23 microamps
the voltage on the diode and the 330k resistor is 406 millivolts


ask me next semester if you want to know why since I haven't taken non-linear elements yet
