Part Seven:
The changes seen in collector current and collector-emitter voltage can be attributed to a change in beta.
One transistor is an NPN and one a PNP, this as well as each transistor having a different value for beta
will cause this variance in results. Through simple calculation, the below results are found.
IC = 11.1%
VCE = 17.6%

Part Nine:
The added emitter resistance changes the voltage significantly, while not changing the current by much.
The changes seen in collector current and collector-emitter voltage can be attributed to a change in beta.
One transistor is an NPN and one a PNP, this as well as each transistor having a different value for beta
will cause this variance in results. Through simple calculation, the below results are found.
IC = 7.5%
VCE = 28.9%

Part Eleven:
The voltage division between resistors one and two cause the emitter and collector currents to be certain
values with respect to the voltage source, the only differences seen in this circuit in the collector and
emitter current and can be attributed to a change in beta. This makes the slight differences in results
attributed directly to the beta value. One transistor is an NPN and one a PNP, this as well as each
transistor having a different value for beta will cause this variance in results. Through simple calculation,
the below results are found.
IC = 2.1%
VCE = 1.6%
