How does a JFET work?

Draw a n-channel (p-channel) JFET. Describe how it works.

Draw the depletion width for zero voltage applied and at pinchoff. Explain why the drain current is almost constant above pinchoff.

How do you calculate the drain current?

For which applications are JFETs used? Why?
