Transistors

Is there any difference between a MOSFET and a standard bipolar NPN?

Sure, one is a MOSFET and the other is an NPN. If you want to know the specific differences, google can provide a lot of info.

But, which is which? :)

I'd go with the one on the outside 'cause that is where the handle on a milk pitcher is located.

This website: http://www.differencebetween.net/technology/difference-between-bjt-and-fet/ proved to be more helpful than you fellows. Thank you all.

The difference is mostly between voltage and current. (And resistance to ESD, but we'll leave that on for now)

I think we were very helpful in helping you do things for yourself. :)

MOSFETs and bipolar transistors (NPN & PNP types) transistors operate very different fundamentally. Bipolar transistors are current operated while mosfets are voltage operated. Many sources of information are on the web, just do a Jedi master trick via google and all will be reveled to you.
