## Collector-Emitter Voltage Formula

Collector Emitter Voltage = Common Collector Voltage-Collector Current*Collector Resistance
VCE = VCC-Ic*Rc

## Why VCE SAT is 0.2 V?

It is because both the junctions in the transistor are forward biased at saturation. Under this condition, for npn transistor the emitter to base voltage is ~+0.7V and than between the base to collector ~0.5V (base p, collector n).

## How to Calculate Collector-Emitter Voltage?

Collector-Emitter Voltage calculator uses Collector Emitter Voltage = Common Collector Voltage-Collector Current*Collector Resistance to calculate the Collector Emitter Voltage, The Collector-Emitter Voltage is defined as the voltage between the collector and emitter terminals under conditions of base current or base-emitter voltage beyond which the collector current remains essentially constant as the base current or voltage is increased. Collector Emitter Voltage is denoted by VCE symbol.
