1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data For beta = 100 and assuming ro is very large, what is the DC voltage at the collector? 2. Relevant equations IB = IE(β+1) IC = β*IB 3. The attempt at a solution Since IE = 0.5mA, IB = 0.0505 A Then, IC = 5.05 A (which doesn't feel right) VC is the same potential across the 30kΩ load? I tried doing KCL with those currents (to find the current thought the load resistor). Should I not be analyzing the direct circuit--should I make an equivalent T-model?
