# Op Amp CMRR problem

I'm studying on my own for an exam. I bumped into this problem that really got me. My answer just doesn't match. Find the CMRR of the operational amplifier above, consider Ad = 1000000 (Answer CMRR= 100000)

• From the theory I know that CMRR = 20*log(Ad/Acm) where Ad is the gain in differential mode and Acm is the gain in common mode.
• I notice that the answer doesn't seem to be in dBs so I assume the answer is given by simply CMRR = Ad/Acm
• Why do they give me Ad? since I can get it from a circuit analysis.
• I got from the picture that Vo/ΔVi = 1/100, so if Vo/ΔVi = Ad my Ad doesn't match with the given Ad
• How can I get Acm, I think this data is inherent of the op-amp and have to be given information.

I think there's something wrong with the problem, but since I don't have a way to confirm it I think I am missing something. Any help will be appreciated.

• @spehro-pefhany was right, I found that the Diferenciattor circuit is used as a Simple Common-Mode Rejection Ratio test circuit, where there are only two resistor values, so the 100 ohm resistor have to be 100k as the one in the feedback loop. – Ivancho Oct 8 '16 at 3:09
• Also @transistor was right, I was mistaken the differential open-loop gain (Ad) with common mode gain (Acm). With this considetations I could get the true CMRR as the answer says. Tank you – Ivancho Oct 8 '16 at 3:09

$A_d$ is the differential open-loop gain of the op-amp and in this case is 1M. (It's not the gain of the circuit with the feedback applied as you seem to think.) So if $V_{IN+} > V_{IN-}$ by 1 µV the output would increase by 1µ x 1M = 1 V.
