Homework Statement


THe problem statement and given solutions are in this thread:

https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=694054

I do not understand the equation for current gain:


Homework Equations


Ai = [itex]\alpha[/itex][itex]\frac{R4}{R4 + Ri}[/itex]


The Attempt at a Solution


I have pages of work on this, but basically what I know is [itex]\frac{Io}{Ie}[/itex] = [itex]\alpha[/itex]

then [itex]\frac{Ie}{Ii}[/itex] must equal [itex]\frac{R4}{R4 + Ri}[/itex], I don't see that.

Why have you started a second thread for your own question?

I started a second thread because I thought I had figured it out. I stated so in that thread, and thus expected no one would reply. I asked another question about this same circuit in a third thread.
