Solution 1

Output voltage, Vo = 2 V, output resistance, Ro = 2 kΩ, base resistance, Ri = 1 kΩ
Current amplification factor, β = 100

Then input signal voltage is calculated as:



Now, collector current is


Therefore, base current is


Solution 2

Collector resistance, RC = 2 kΩ = 2000 Ω

Audio signal voltage across the collector resistance, V = 2 V

Current amplification factor of the transistor, β = 100

Base resistance, RB = 1 kΩ = 1000 Ω

Input signal voltage = Vi

Base current = IB

We have the amplification relation as:

Voltage amplification = `V/V_' = beta R_C/R_B`

`V_i = V R_B/(beta R_C)`

`= (2 xx 1000)/(100 xx 2000) = 0.01 V`

Therefore, the input signal voltage of the amplifier is 0.01 V.

Base resistance is given by the relation:

`R_B = V_i/I_B`

`= 0.01/1000 = 10 xx 10^(-6)mu^6 A`

Therefore, the base current of the amplifier is 10 μA.
