Operational Amplifier with mixed feedback

So, I came across this circuit in a test, it's regarding the operation of an op amp with multiple (positive and negative) feedback, the circuit is as follows: I was asked to evaluate the following ...

Unstability condition for positive feedback network involving phase change

For positive feedback: $G=\frac{A}{1-AB}$ According to Wikipedia, this system is unstable for AB>1. This condition appears to be for the cases when 'A' and 'B' have real values. But in general, A ...

Op-amp circuit to control gain of two analog channels with one single-section potentiometer

I'm working on designing my own headphone amplifier with extremely high fidelity. One thing I want to incorporate is a circuit to control the gains of the two channel's using one single-channel ...

Offset voltage comes to saturation in coupling amplifier circuit using OpAmp with Gain=100

I did get in troubles with my student project circuit below! The purpose is to amplify difference between two inputs. Specifically, 20mV and 10mV are connected with input to get 1V at the last OpAmp'...

Why the Wien Oscillator output is a sine?

I don't understand why the output signal of the Wien oscillator is a sinusoidal waveform. I can easily understand how a sine waveform can be generated by an oscillator which contains an LC circuit (...

Can oscillations happen even if negative feedback is present?

By OPAMP book says that virtual short is applicable in OPAMP only if negative feedback is present an output is not oscillating.I don't get how oscillations can occur at output if the feedback is ...

How to identify the circuit has negative feedback or positive feedback?

I am having difficulty in identifying whether feedback is negative or positive (i'm not talking about feedback topology) My teacher told that there is a method in which, after deactivating ...

Misconception in opamp feedback

Is it a misconception that feedback into inverting terminal of opamp is negative feedback and feedback into noninverting terminal will be positive feedback? I feel it is. Because all oscillators have ...

Negative feedback sustainability

If positive feedback makes output exponentially increase and cause instability in an opamp then why doesn't negative feedback make output extremely small and cause the system to collapse?

Can someone explain this op amp “tone control”?

Its supposed to be part of a guitar effect pedal, why is there positive feedback besides the negative feedback? I was reading about op amps and from what i understand positive feedback is very rarely ...

Voltage buffer with ideal Op-Amp (positive feedback) - Instability

I know that the circuits which employ negative feedback are stable, whereas those which employ positive feedback are not stable. How can I prove that a voltage buffer (ideal op-amp) which uses ...

Determining The Polarity of a FeedBack Circuit

In determining the polarity of such a circuit I used the following reasoning: if Vin goes up ID1 goes up and ID2 goes down, ID4 goes down and VG3,VG4 go up because of PMOS, then Vout goes down, if ...

Confusion about positive feedback condition in gain equation

Closed loop gain A' of the above op amp system is given as: A' = A / (1 + β*A) where A is the open loop gain which is a positive huge number. Here as a side note, my understanding is that β being ...

What if you alter a differential amplifier by giving it a positive feedback rather than a negative feedback?

Figure 1 In the above Image 1, you see is a differential amplifier . It has a negative feedback as required. Now take a look at figure 2 below. Figure 2 Lets take a look at figure 2. Now that I ...
