**Problem Statement:**

1. Given that the beta of a transistor is 36, Vcc=5v, Vbb= 3.6V, Rc=440 ohm, Rb=640 ohm, find Ic, and Ib. Also find power dissipated across transistor.

Assume silicon diode. [Ie vbe = 0.7]

**The attempt at a solution**

I applied voltage equations on the collector and base loop. My equations are:

5 - 440Ic - Vce = 0 ------(1)

and

3.6 -40Ib - 0.7 =0 ------(2)

I got the value of Ib from equation 2.

Now I cant find Ic.

I tried using the following relation:

Ic = beta Ib.

But then Ic comes to 3.625 A which is wrong.

What am I doing wrong? How do I solve this?
