(a) Find an equation for the output voltage V out of the circuit below in terms of the resistors and the given voltages. Note that R var is a potentiometer. (b) The circuit at left is essentially a voltage regulator that is controlled by the potentiometer. Given that R f = 10 k Ω and that R var has a range from 0.5 Ω to 100 k Ω , find the maximum and minimum power that can be dissipated across the load resistor. a) v + = 0 => v =0 (virtual ground) var var var var ( 15 ) 0 15 15 v V I R R R ! ! ! + = = = Since the current flow into the inverting input of the opamp is assumed to be negligible small, KCL inquires If = Ivar  out out f f f var V v V 15 I = = = R R R => var 15 f out R V R = ! b) Rvar: 0.5 to 100k Ω , and Rf = 10k Ω Initially, we calculate V out_max = (10k Ω /0.5 Ω )x15 = 300,000 V!! Of course, this is well more than the +15V power supply voltage, so clipping will occur. Therefore, the maximum output voltage is V out_max = 15V. Therefore, P max = (15V) 2 /20 Ω = 11.25 W The minimum voltage is calculated in a similar way: V out_min = (10k...
