I am currently learning about transistors from allaboutcircuits.com.
He presented the following schematic:
He claims that when the transistor is in its cutoff state, V.output will read the full voltage of the battery, which he stated earlier to be 15V. Why is this? Shouldn't the voltage reading be smaller than 15V since of the voltage needs to be dropped across the resistor at the top of the circuit? Is he neglecting the resistance of the resistor for teaching purposes, or am I missing something?
