    Hi everyone,
    I am confused with the Astable Multivibrator.My teacher said that:
    "When Q1 on and Q2 off, the current to charge for capacitor goes from Vcc --->R ---> C2---> BE of transistor ---> Ground like red line in the picture."
    I think that this is wrong because when Q2 is off, the colecter voltage of Q2 is Vcc and therefore there is no current flows through capacitor C2.
    As for me I think it must be yellow line like in the picture.
    Am I right?
