741 Op. Amp.: Inverting input connected to output (pin 2 connected to pin 6). What does it mean?

simulate this circuit – Schematic created using CircuitLab I am a newbie electronics students. My question is, what does it mean (what happens) when you connect pin 2 to pin 6 on a 741 op. ...

Understanding this circuit with op. amps

I'm studying electrical engineering and I've came to a problem, where I cannot proceed. It's a "simple" task, where we're talking about an inverting op.amp with 2 voltage sources, each 1V, while all ...

What happens if you add a voltage source to the output of an op-amp?

I'm trying to self-learn EE and have a question: What happens if you add an external voltage source to the output of an op-amp? Say as in this picture: I know that WITHOUT the Va, Vout would just ...

Circuit analysis on op-amp with no negative feedback

In this diagram, there's an op-amp with no negative feedback. What is V+ (voltage at positive end of op-amp)? I'm self-learning circuits, and a resource I'm using says V+ = V3 / 2R. However, I don't ...

In solving an op amp problem with two voltage sources, why can't we combine it?

Say we have a circuit like Why can't we solve by doing $$V_{out} = -(V_{in} - V_{offset}) * (R_f / R)$$ We know that $V_{out}$ for a typical inverting amp (that doesn't have $V_{offset}$) is ...

In a real-world op-amp, how does it make sure Vn and Vp differs and don't equal each other?

I was confused about op-amps and asked this question: In an op-amp, why does Vn approach Vp until the difference is delta V / A? Why doesn't Vn just equal Vp? and received really helpful answers. ...

In an op-amp, why does Vn approach Vp until the difference is delta V / A? Why doesn't Vn just equal Vp?

In an op-amp (non-inverting), when $V_s$ increases by $\Delta V$, $V_n$ approaches $V_p$ until the difference is $\Delta V/ A$ (where A is infinity). Why is there the $\Delta V/ A$ ...

Explain trim pot for VU meter

I have the following schematic that is supposed to rectify the signal going to a VU meter and also trim it, so the user can adjust the position of "0dB". What I don't understand is why and how the ...

Understanding this LPF in opamp feedback loop

I'm using a basic opamp driven mosfet to implement a precision low current sink for an LED: This seems to work just fine within the range that I want it (10mA or so). I've seen other circuits that ...

Calculate op-amp output voltage

I am trying to calculate the output voltage of the circuit. I know that this is a voltage follower, but I am trying to understand how it works. simulate this circuit – Schematic created using ...
Op amp design that gives $V_{out} = -2 *V_{1} + 3*V_{2} - 3 V_{3}$
I know that a regular summing amplifier does $\ V_{out} = -(a*V1 + b*V2 + c*V3)$ but how do I invert one of the gains?
