Yes you can. I already pointed out where the basic equations can be
found. For the simple model, the device is either in linear (ron) region
or constant current (saturation) region. The formula for the gm in these
regions are available. Have you tried google?
In saturation the gm varies as sqrt(I). If you know it at one current,
then it is known at all currents. Do we need to hold you hand as well?
