I have been trying to understand slew rate and so I set up a circuit with an op amp (LM741) that would allow me to measure it. The claimed slew rate of the package is about 0.50V/us, but my slew rate turned out to be about 0.3V/us.
For such a small number, this discrepancy seems a little too great. I am positive that I set up the circuit right because my circuit's DC gain is very close to what I expected. So how come the slew rate is so much smaller? Are there any specific external factors that might influence the op amp's measured slew rate (like the particular oscilloscope or the power supply I am using)?
