BMEN 3120 Operational Amplifiers iii) The screen below shows Vs2 together with Vo2. Vs2 is the sine wave shown in green and Vo2 is the discontinuous wave in yellow. This serves as another example of one of the original sources of the continuous triangular sine wave.

BMEN 3120 Operational Amplifiers iv) The oscilloscope below displays Vs3 along with Vo2. Vs3 is the rectangular pulse shown in green, while Vo2 is the yellow discontinuous waveform. This displays the locations where continuity was lost due to subtraction with the rectangular pulse waveform.

BMEN 3120 Operational Amplifiers Exercise 3. Voltage divider The voltage divider circuit was built using two identical 1.2 kΩ resistors for R1 and R2. The voltage follower added a high impedance component to isolate the voltage across the voltage divider circuit(R1 and R2). R L (ohms) Voltage across R L Simple voltage divider Voltage divider with voltage follower (i.e. open circuit) 1.5V 0.644V

This indicates a direct relationship between the voltage and the load resistance but large variation occurs since no component exists to maintain the input voltage and voltage output across the voltage divider. This results in an exponential curve. However, with the addition of a voltage follower operational amplifier, the relationship between the load resistance and voltage is better represented by a decreasing linear function. The direct relationship is maintained between voltage and load resistance even after a voltage follower circuit is added. The voltage follower shows more consistent values. A voltage follower has a gain of one, has the ability to reduce current flow, and allows to maintain consistent voltage throughout regardless of resistance resulting in more consistent values for voltage.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
