In [2]:
# stand off and peak point voltage

import math
#Variable declaration
Vbb=20                 # in V
eta=0.6                # instrinsic stand off ratio
Vb=0.7                 # in V

#Calculations
sov=eta*Vbb            # Stand off voltage
Vp=(eta*Vbb)+Vb;

print("(i). Stand off voltage,(V) = %.f "%sov)
print("(ii). Peak point voltage,Vp(V) = %.1f"%Vp)

(i). Stand off voltage,(V) = 12
(ii). Peak point voltage,Vp(V) = 12.7

# time period

import math
#Variable declaration

R=100.0                # in kilo-ohms
Vp=10.0                # in V

#Calculations
eta=Vp/Vbb                                           # instrinsic stand off ratio
T= ((C*10**-12*R*10**3 *math.log(1/(1-eta))))*10**7  #in micro-seconds

#Result
print("time period of the saw  tooth waveform generated is ,(micro-seconds)= %.2f"%T)

time period of the saw  tooth waveform generated is ,(micro-seconds)= 69.31

#Result
print("Resistance,Rb1(k-ohm) = %.f"%Rb1)
