Monday's quiz will involve a calculation using cascaded two-port amplifier
models. The quizzes on Wednesday and next Monday (10/27) will have op-amp
questions. Practice problems for both are available.
Here is one version of the lab exam from
last year. Note that it mentions a 741 op amp. If there is an op-amp
circuit on this year's exam, it will use the 324.
There will be an exam review session on Tuesday evening (tonight)
from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. in 205 Carver Hall. This is not mandatory
and no new material will be presented. The only activities will be answering
questions and working through example problems. If you feel like you need
a bit more help with the circuit concepts that we have been covering, then
you should try to attend.
Notes for superposition, which we will discuss on Friday, are on the
web site under the topics page.

There were a couple of typos in homework problem 14 of HW C set that
may have caused confusion. Both parts of Prob. 14 should be done using
source transformation techniques. Also, the voltage label in the second
circuit was incorrect. These have been fixed.

I will not be in my office for office hours today. If you have an urgent
question, please send an email. I apologize for any inconvenience.
There are divider practice problems available. Although it is unlikely that
anyone needs much practice with such simple things.

In order to fix a problem with numbers not showing up in the Lab 1
instructions and template, the figures have been redrawn. The old

the same information.

The numbers on homework problem 4 have been adjusted so that
they actually make sense. If you have already solved problem
4 using the original numbers, you do not need to re-work it
with the new numbers.
I will be in lab from 11:00 to about 11:45 on Friday, and so will
not be in my office for office hours during that time.
