    how do you calculate the resistor for the base? and what does it take to get more current through the transistor? larger or smaller resistor? and what I don't get yet. is if they are current controlled. what about the volts? what is the voltage requirements to control the base. I understand MOSFETs a lot better. but I need a transistor to use as a gate driver. so I need to learn how they work. I'm also self taught. and very new to this also! but great video.

    It was a good explanation, but that effect in the voice is sooo annoying !

    Well this was a horrible explanation of a bjt as a switch.
