## Q. 3.2

## Step-by-Step

## Verified Solution

Table 3–1 shows the calculations of I_{C} using the relationship I_{C} = \beta _{DC}I_{B} . The resulting curves are plotted in Figure 3–11 . To account for the forward Early voltage, the resulting curves are shown with an arbitrary upward slope as previously discussed.
