So I was playing around yesterday and decided I would pull out my old 200 in 1 Kit and build a circuit and see how things work, just for fun. Should have left well enough alone. Can someone explain current flow through this simple circuit. I am a conventional theory guy dealing with automotive all my life so if it can be done that way, even better. My second question is, why do I have a higher voltage on my base than my source? I am suspecting that the capacitors are causing this but then I am not sure why there would be flow through my transistor if my base is higher than my emitter? I have attached a diagram with my voltages on it. Thanks in advance for your help. Cheers!
