PNP vs NPN

Hey. Is it true that increasing the base voltage on an npn transistor will turn it on, whereas it will a pnp off?

Microphones

Hi. Wondering how those cheap, 2 lead microphones work. Do they change their resistance or emit a changed voltage as the input changes?

Collector vs Emitter

Hey,<p>Is there much difference is placing a load in the collector path or emitter path of a transistor. This is a basic situation where the collector is tied to Vcc and the emitter to ground, with the base voltage driving the on/off state of the transistor. I am not talking different current values...

JFET vs BJT

Hi guys,<p>You all sound smart and all and well, i just started electronics and was wondering why you would use a JFET vs a BJT. I know the electronic difference (in construction) by why!!!!!<p>thanks
