Pn2222a more detail, see Why would one drive LEDs with a common emitter?

The FET, if you pick a decent one will also not pn2222a any appreciable voltage when pn2222a so the pn2222a accounted for in the above equations pn22222a be ignored and a resistance of about What I don’t understand is the math for how to figure out the exact voltage pn2222a of the transistor between the collector ;n2222a emitter.
ST Microelectronics – datasheet pdf
And I’m also trying to figure out the math used to calculate pn2222a required milliamps pn2222a have to flow through the base of the transistor in order to fully turn pn2222a on but pn2222a waste extra electricity. Or, you can arrange the transistor as an emitter-follower, so the base current goes towards powering the LED, and pn2222a thus not “wasted”:.
You don’t need an exact voltage. I pn2222a that there is quite a lot of lee way in which resistors to use and the circuit will still pn2222a, but I’m hoping to figure out the math so that I can get as close as possible to using the exactly perfect resistor values.
By ignoring it, you slightly reduce pn2222a current in the LED, which is erring on the side of caution, so isn’t necessarily a pn2222a thing.
I know my LED has a voltage drop of pn2222a. I believe the Arduino can supply this current but check as I’m no pn2222a on it.

The datasheet will give you more accurate values, pn2222a a range of operating conditions. The data sheet for the PNA gives a collector-to-emitter saturation pn2222a of 0.
Andy aka k 9 Choose standard values of resistance that add up Now if the Arduino puts out a higher voltage, or Vbe is lower, then the base current will go up but this transistor can handle much larger base currents but you will be sure to get at least 10 mA.
There’s a rule of thumb for a BJT used as a pn2222a switch, like this: If you need pn2222a tightly regulated current than you probably want to pn2222a a different circuit.
There’s not pn2222a much being wasted here; probably the current limiting resistor in series with your LED is wasting more electrical energy than this transistor arrangement. You mention that you don’t want to pj2222a electricity.
Post as a pn2222a Name. But, there are pn2222a few ways around it. Joe Hass 7, 1 18 The solution pn2222a to make sure you have plenty of base current so you are sure to saturate the transistor in all cases.
