I am using an NPN transistor (2N4401).
In the above schematic, charge is only coming in through the base, and not the collector.
My LED is dim, but still lit. Is this the expected behavior of a transistor, or am I doing something wrong?
My expectation was that there should be no charge flowing through the emitter since the collector is not connected. Obviously, when the collector has charge applied, but the base does not, then the LED does not light up. This is expected, but it's also happening the other way around.
