Two of the circuits built will have current gains which will be analyzed and establish how the gain depends upon a variable resistance. Through this the usefulness of transistors will be seen and when they are applicable. Single-Supply Follower: The circuit shown in figure-1 was constructed. From theory the voltage at the base is 2 1 2 150 10 5.36 130 150 B CC R k V V V R R k k = = = + + . In graph-1 clipping can be seen occurring at -4.484V when the input voltage is turned down the clipping still takes place at -4.444V which is shown in graph-2, when the max input voltage is turned down below the previous values clipping stops occurring shown in graph-3. The clipping occurs because the voltage at the base becomes less then the voltage at the emitter and the transistor...
