I am given a circuit below and I was hoping to clear up some misunderstanding I may have about conducting and non-conducting diodes. I am not sure which part of my knowledge is wrong, although I know that something is wrong as I have gotten the following question wrong. Below is my working out, alongside the question:
I have found that the diode connected to the 2V will be conducting, to which the output voltage will be 2-0.7 = 1.3V.
I have come to the conclusion that this diode will be conducting because it means that it will stop the other diode connected to the 8V from conducting as 2V < 8V.
Whereas if it had been the diode connected to the 8V that was conducting, then the diode connected to the 2V would also conduct, leading to two different output voltages...
I appreciate any help,
