# 26.6: Questions

1. Does the maximum load power compare favorably to the supplied DC power and the transistor’s power dissipation? That is, is the circuit efficient? How does it compare to class A operation (Exercise 12)?

2. How is the notch distortion affected by the power supply?

3. Compare the resistor bias and diode bias circuits regarding idle current $$(I_{CQ})$$ and notch distortion. Compute the $$I_{CQ}$$ versus $$V_{CC}$$ stability $$(I_{CQ-MAX} / I_{CQ-MIN})$$ of each circuit using the first and last entries of Tables 26.5.1 and 26.5.2.

4. How does the class B circuit distortion compare to class A operation (Exercise 12)?

5. Would increasing the Vcc supply increase the output compliance? Why/why not?
