Homework Help: Need help with my transistors and voltage amplification

  1. Apr 13, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Does the common emitter circuit exhibit voltage amplification? That being said, how would I develop a more accurate transistor model than the first order-model?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm not sure what voltage amplification is, though the hint states that amplification is when you have a region where the magnitude of the change in Vout with Vin is greater than unity. I suppose this is related to slope, but what does Unity mean?
