1. Based on the results of Table 17.5.1, is the transistor operating in saturation, cutoff or in the linear region?
2. Based on the results of Tables 17.5.2 and 17.5.3, does the circuit achieve a stable operating point when compared to beta?
3. How does the Emitter Bias circuit compare to Base Bias in terms of Q point stability and complexity?
4. Using the original circuit, determine a new value for the emitter resistance that will yield half of the quiescent collector current recorded in Table 17.5.1.
