# Changes when $V_{be}$ is increased in npn transistor

For the given circuit, a statement has been given in my book, saying

It is obvious that if Vbe is increased by a small amount, both hole current from emitter region and the electron current from the base region will increase. As a consequence both Ib and Ic will increase proportionally

I believe there is a mistake and it should be rather,

electron current from the emitter region

Because BE seems to be forward biased and thus the majority carriers, that is, electrons from Emitter should increase and go into the base and further in collector.

Am I right or wrong?

• @WhatRoughBeast, you are saying that the book would be "wrong". It certainly would help if you would be more specific: Which statement in the book is wrong? And - who has mentioned a current source ? Neither the book nor the questioner?

• @LvW - In looking at the figure more closely, and thinking about your comment, I realized that I was mistaken. I interpreted a current meter on the base as a current source, which is clearly what is technically called a brainfart. I have deleted my comment. Thanks for drawing it to my attention.
