Solution

## Input charcteristics: It is the graph drawn between input current and input voltage when output voltage is kept constant. Output characteristics : It is the graph drawn between output current and output voltage when input currentis kept constant. (a) Input resitance (Ri =[Change in emitter base voltage(△VBE)Change in base current(△IB)]at constantVCE or Ri=(△VBE△IB)VCE (b) Current amplification factor, (β)=(△IC△IB)VCE = △IC△IE−△IC = △IC△IE△IC△IE−△IC△IE = α1−α ⇒ β=α1−α  Suggest Corrections  0      Related Videos   Transistor
