# Op-amp circuit hysteresis calculation

Given this circuit, I have to find $$\\frac{V_2}{V_1}\$$ as well as the magnitude of hysteresis.

I don't need a full solution. Any hints to approach this problem would suffice.

So far, I know the left op-amp is a Schmitt trigger and the right one has unity gain.

Edit update: Now I know that in case Schmitt trigger outputs 5V Inverting op-amp makes it -5V applying voltage divider in this case with 5 at one side and -5 at the other. I get two values either 7.5 or 2.5, 2.5 seems the correct answer but if I take 0.75R as the voltage drop for V+ then it's not correct why? Is it that the V+ automatically thinks that taking 7.5 as the reference Overshoots the saturation Voltage of the op-amp itself? update: V2/V1 graph looks like this,

Inference: I tried to apply Voltage divider in the case where negative/positive potential was present instead of ground and I failed terribly.

• @Joey Mallone . would you please provide me some hint regarding this problem? Jul 24, 2019 at 8:51
• You need to show your attempt. Jul 24, 2019 at 15:37
• Does the rule: voltages at the input terminals are equal qualify for the circuit with positive feedback or no feedback at all? Jul 24, 2019 at 15:51
• Treat it like an ideal op-amp. Don't overthink it. Jul 24, 2019 at 15:54

The difference in the references is your hysteresis. I have no idea how can you consider a $$\V_2/V_1\$$ ratio if the first op. amp. is always saturated.
