I'm having a bit of an issue with this:
Values for resistors were selected more or less random, there is no real significance to them at this point, just so that I can ask the question:
- why on earth is Vc 3.44V according to this simulation?
- same goes for Ve 526mV?
If I replaced the NPN transistor with a wires, the voltage at the point of the transistor would be 2.5V, as I would expect. This leads me to think, there is something I still don't know about how a BJT works.
Is there some kind of feedback going on or maybe some process inside the transistor I've yet to explore?
