### Why is CMRR effect multiplied by gain in this non inverting op amp configuration?

In this document Vout of a non inverting op amp is given as follows: But why $\frac{V_{in}}{CMRR}$ is also multiplied by the gain? I would write it as: \\$ V_{out} = \big[1 + \frac{R2}{R1} \big] \...

### Effect of bias resistor value on common-mode rejection in a differential or instrumentation amplifier

In the below schematics a source is coupled to a differential amplifier. Rb is a bias resistor for bias currents to flow: Since in instrumentation amplifiers it is a remedy to add resistors for bias ...
