Finding emitter voltage using Multisim

  1. Oct 29, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Using DC Operating point analysis in Multisim (DO NOT USE
    MULTIMETER INSTRUMENT-NO CREDIT) determine the emitter
    voltage and emitter current. Provide a screenshot of the results
    window. Put a title for the output and label accordingly. Show clearly
    the emitter current and the voltage on the results window

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I built the circuit asked of me I will upload it and I figured out how to get emitter current. I also understand that Ve=Vb-Vbe and I have Vbe what I am confused about is how to find the base voltage of the circuit so I can implement the equation?

    If you have the emitter current then you can calculate the potential on the emitter. If the transistor is forward biased then you should know the "standard" potential between the emitter and base...
