3. At room temperature (20°C), a Si diode carrying a forward current of 10 mA exhibits a forward voltage of 0.65V while a germanium diode carrying the same current exhibits a forward voltage of 0.31V. Estimate Is for each of the diodes assuming that the ideality factor is unity and that the effects of series resistance are negligible
