NPN Transistors

A transistor in which a P-type semiconductor is sandwiched between tow N-type semiconductors, is known as NPN transistor.
NPN is one of the two types of bipolar transistors, consisting of a layer of P-doped semiconductor (the "base") between two N-doped layers. (As shown in the Diagram)

NPN Transistor
In this type of transistor, a small amount of current flows because P-region(Base) has a small amount of charge carriers.
The holes move from base towards emitter, they cannot go towards collector because collector has smaller amount of charge carriers as compared to emitter.
