#### Solution Preview

An operational amplifier, or op-amp, is an electronic device that can perform mathematical operations of electronic signals, hence the name of the device. It consists of a differential amplifier that gets the difference between its two input terminals and amplifies them, and a signal driver that provides power to the differential signal to send it to its output terminal. Because of its ability to perform mathematical operations of signals with less ...
