    Am I not seeing it or is it simply not there?

    I find these are good circuits to talk about to assist in the understanding of transistor circuitry and always try to squeeze a little tidbit about them in my classes.

    Except for I question the math involved on that page. For example: I don't see how (.6-5)/(.6-2*5) simplifies to 1/2.

    The wikipedia's equation is like this...

    Solving for t in:

    t = -RC * ln { (VBE_Q1 - VCC)/(VBE_Q1 - 2 * VCC) }

    For this circuit to work VCC >> VBE_Q1 .Now the symbol ">>" means "is much greater than" i.e.. the equation is assuming that VBE_Q1 is a very small quantity compared to VCC and subtracting VBE_Q1 from VCC would not make much difference in the value of VCC ,so we are just eliminating VBE_Q1 from the equation and we get

    t = -RC * ln { -VCC/-(2 * VCC) }
    t = -RC * ln { VCC/2 * VCC}
    t = -RC * ln (1/2)

    Its like this if x = 0.1 and y = 100,we can say (y - x) is approx y.In figures 99.9 is almost 100.

    Good Luck
