A strain gauge with gauge factor GF and nominal resistance R is used to measure strain
on a specimen as shown in Figure 4 (b). The strain gauge is connected to a bridge circuit
and an amplifier as shown in Figure 4 (a). Assume the op-amp is ideal. Derive an
expression for the output voltage Vout. Is the relationship between the output voltage and
the change in gauge resistance linear or nonlinear? (a) Solution: Figure 4 (b) Since the op amp is ideal and there is negative feedback,

(V out is a linear function of ∆R )
V + =V in Remark Recall that for a quarter bridge circuit with one strain gauge, the output voltage is a
nonlinear function of ∆R . Therefore, the op amp in the circuit linearizes the output
voltage as a function of ∆R . page 4 of 4...
