Hey There
I have a few questions about the attached circuit picture(it is a solved example from Borow's book) :
1)Why isn't Vbb mentioned?Is that because of its equality to Vcc?
2)Why is the alternative circuit true ? Why did the Vcc notation remain in its place and also Why was a Dc source called Vcc added ?

Thanks in advance for all the helpers
I will be glad to see your altenraive circuits diagrams since This one isn't really clear for me

Look at this marked up/edited diagram, it should make it clear.

Ok ,thank you for your diagram , it made things clearer although that
I still don't understand where Vbb notation dissapeared(Is it required ? if not ,so why ?)
Could you help me with that?

hi,
I do not see a Vbb on your diagram.??

What would a Vbb notation mean , anyway.?

Oh sorry ,I probably didn't make myself clear enough
Ok, Vbb is the voltage seen on the pictures attached
Now ,Bobrow ,the author of the book uses in its book when sketching
a diagram of every circuit which includes NPN BJT t, and he simply omitted this notation on this specific diargram
I wanted to ask you why he did that

Also ,pay attention that on the second diagram(on the right one) Vbb isn't mentioned explicity ,yet ,it is written in the explaination above it that Vbb=Vcc=10V

I would read the two circuits as you do, Vbb is the same value as Vcc .
The author has renamed Vcc to Vbb.

Ok, so actually on the first diagram we started with ,you actually say Vbb=Vcc,am I right ? and since
that Vbb doesn't appear ?

In the first circuit the Base bias upper resistor is connected to Vcc, which is typical.

The author has then reduced the circuit to show Vcc supplying the Base as a separate voltage source, which should be named Vbb driving the base resistors, note that Vbe is the voltage between the Base and Emitter.

Ok ,understood ,I actually got really confused with his notations
Thank you very much for your help ,sir!
