In this problem, you have not mentioned how the current varies between t1 and t2. I'm assuming it to be sinusoidal variation.
square sum of current (SSC)= integration (t=0 to T) [i^2*dt]
here, T = 5 ms = 5000 micro sec
SSC = 150^2*(t1-0) + integration(t1 to ...
This solution provides in approximately 140 words how to calculate square sum of current, mean square of current, and RMS in a diode.
