Hey everyone!
I have attached the following image that will help with my problem. I have the solution but would like to ask a few questions.
I first have to find the DC current gain. I have two equations to choose from which are:
\(I_D=\frac{1}{2}K(V_G_S  V_t)^2\) (saturation region)
or:
\(I_D=K[(V_G_S  V_t)V_D_S  \frac{1}{2}(V_D_S)^2]\) (Triode region)
The solution uses the saturation formula. Would it be possible to explain the reason why this is so?
In addition, \(V_G_S \) is unknown but this can be written as:
\(V_G_S = V_G  V_S\)
I know how to find V_G (potential divider) but am confused how \(V_S = 3I_D\).
I thought that \(V_D = V_S\) so from the figure shown:
\(V_S 0 = I_D.3K\Omega\)
so:
\(V_S = I_D.3K\)
Please let me know where I am going wrong and thank you for reading!
