1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
If IB and IC (IB = Base current and IC = Collector current) of bipolar junction transistor are 1mA and 100 mA respectively, determine its current amplification ratio in common emitter configuration.

2. Relevant equations
IC=β*IB
Where β = current gain = $\alpha$/($\alpha$-1) (is this the same as current amplification ratio)???

Where $\alpha$ = IC/IE (IE = Emitter current)

3. The attempt at a solution
I understand that whatever signal is input in through the base is amplified out through the collector.
