Question

Would you prefer a material with a high melting point or a low melting point to be used as a cathode in a diode?

Solution

We will prefer a material with high melting point to be used as the cathode in a diode. The material of the cathode of a diode should be resistant to high temperature, have high melting point and be electrically conductive because thermionic emission occurs at high temperature.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
