  1. Consider the common-emitter amplifier shown below with values  V,  k ,  k ,  k ,  k , and a forward-bias voltage drop across the base-emitter junction of 0.7 V. Calculate approximate values for , , , , and the voltage gain. Using the measured h parameters and , calculate the input impedance, base current, and voltage gain. Compare your calculated voltage gain with your approximation.
