Help with simple diode circuit ???

Suppose that a diode is connected in series with a resistor to a battery. Assuming that the values for Vsource, R, and the voltage curve for the diode (some function f(I) ) are known, how can the current I (current) be calculated? Also assume that f(.020) = 1.2 volts . Also lets assume that the diod...
