where, CMRR = Common mode rejection ratio

i.e., no common mode component appears at the output.

As positive feedback is applied hence, the op-amp is forced to operate in saturation region. since, input is applied in positive terminal, output voltage is + VSAT, i.e., + 15 V.

1. (c) let two poles exist at s = – a and s = – b.

Hence, open-loop transfer function
G (S) = 1 /(s + a) (s + b)
and H(s) be feedback function.
closed-loop transfer function = V(s + a) (s + b)/1 + H|(s + a) (s + b)
Characteristic equation
= (s + a) (s + b) + h
= s2 + (a + b) s + ab + h
roots = -(a + b) + (a + b)2 – 4 (ab + h)/2
Hence, closed-loop transfer function depends upon H, amplifier may be unstable for large value of H.
