What is the average SAT score of Ivy League students?

It might be more useful to take the schools' reported numbers as reported to both US News and on their own common data sets.

These numbers are interpolated between the 25th and 75th percentile numbers reported. They should be very close to the mean/median numbers. Only the critical reading and math sections of the SAT are used for this combined score.

  • Harvard: 2195
  • Yale: 2195
  • Princeton: 2185
  • Columbia: 2150
  • Penn: 2130
  • Dartmouth: 2140
  • Cornell: 2095
  • Brown: 2130

Others:

  • MIT: 2235
  • Stanford: 2145
  • CalTech: 2210
  • Duke: 2140
  • Chicago: 2130
  • Northwestern: 2135
  • Washington University in St. Louis: 2150
  • Johns Hopkins: 2095
  • Rice: 2120

How does diode conduct?

diodes really do not conduct, they actually stop reverse voltage from going backwards on a line. For example say you have a 12 volt solenoid that is triggered by 12 volt supply source. The solenoid or coil is energized by the 12 volts and when switched off the power can reverse in the depletiation mode of losing the 12 volts.Sooo to stop this you put a diode across the coil at the connection to make sure when power is removed no backwards power keeps the solenoid energized.Many years ago there was a company i worked for that forgot to put the diodes across the solenoids and during a power glitch the solenoid energized and stayed on until it melted burning down the drug store which the equipment was located in.hope this helps.

Also let me say this most diodes conduct around .7 volts in one direction but totally block in reverse. Try it out yourself, get a small diode and put a VOM meter across it in OHMS mode.One way it will conduct and the other way it won,t.If you run across a diode that conduicts in both directions it is bad.

Do schools prefer their application to the common application if they accept it as long as you fill out the supplement and send them all the information they need?

All colleges that accept the Common Application agree to treat all applications equally. In fact, many now use only the Common App (including Harvard). The application you use is not as important as the care and thoroughness that you put into completing it. And most importantly, the strength of your transcript matters most, followed by other criteria including your essay, SAT/ACT scores, letters of recommendation, extracurriculars, etc. They prefer you to fill out and submit their application because it shows your personal interest to that specific college/university instead of them thinking that you just filled out one application and forwarded it to various colleges.

Why does a zener diode work in reverse bias?

A zener diode is designed to allow a current to flow through it in a direction that is reverse to the normal flow of current that would occur if it were used as a rectifier. Current can flow through a zener diode in both directions. In the forward direction, current will flow at a low voltage, usually about 1 volt. In the reverse direction, no current will flow until the voltage impressed across it is equal to the zener voltage. At this point, a current will flow and an extremely small increase in voltage will cause a large increase in current. Most importantly, it should be noted that the current flow through the zener diode is in the reverse direction to that of a normal rectifier. With the application of sufficient reverse voltage, a p-n junction will experience a rapid avalanche breakdown and conduct current in the reverse direction. Valence electrons which break free under the influence of the applied electric field can be accelerated enough that they can knock loose other electrons and the subsequent collisions quickly become an avalanche. When this process is taking place, very small changes in voltage can cause very large changes in current. The breakdown process depends upon the applied electric field, so by changing the thickness of the layer to which the voltage is applied, zener diodes can be formed which break down at voltages from about 4 volts to several hundred volts.
