op amp output voltage derivation
I need some help in deriving the output voltage of the following circuit
My calculations does not seem to match the simulations
I have computed the output voltage as
(K1/K3)*V2  (K2/K3)*V1
K1=R4/(R3+R4)
K2=( R2//R5 ) / ( R1 + R2//R5 )
K3=( R1//R2 ) / ( R5 + R1//R2 )
Numerically it leads me to Vo=4.58*V24.21*V1 ...But it does not match the simulation

Re: op amp output voltage derivation
Hi,
For an about ideal OPAMP the input current is considered to be zero, therefore there is no voltage drop across R2.
> you don´t need to care about R2.
R3 and R4 are a voltage divider.
> Calculate the voltage at IN+
> IN has the same voltage as IN+
Current in R1: I_R1 = (V1 V_IN) / R1
The same current is through R5.
Voltage across R5: V_R5 =  I_R1 x R5
Output voltage: V_out = V_IN + V_R5

Re: op amp output voltage derivation
R2 does not affect any voltage gain.

Re: op amp output voltage derivation
Your opamp does not have a power supply so it will not work.
Your output voltage is shown with no polarity.

Re: op amp output voltage derivation
@KlausST : Thank you, My mistake was to consider R2 as being tied to GND
@Audioguru: That it is not the schematic of a real circuit, just a simulation. If the power supply it is not shown it does not mean that it is inexistent. And by convention 5V means +5V.
I don't know anywone who will asume that 5V it is in fact 5V. In the simulation the op amp supply is +12VDC

Re: op amp output voltage derivation
Here are the node calculations. vx is the node between r1 and r2. It is also the voltage of the opamp inputs. vo is, of course, the opamp output voltage. An infinitesimal amount of current is assumed to exist in R2 to sustain electrical conductivity so that vx and the opamp inputs are at the same voltage. The result for vo is a complicated expression, but it matches quite closely with Falstad. If I knew what current Falstad assumed through r2, I could give an exact result.

Re: op amp output voltage derivation
Start with + input, the easy one.
VIN+ = 2.5V*(100k/(25.9k+100k)) = 2.0V.
Now ignore R2 since nobody's telling you input bias
current. Though depending on op amp this could
matter slightly. VIN must equal VIN+. So now
I(V1) must equal (2.01.3)/23.7K or 29.5uA.
This must also be the current through R5, to 2.0V
(on VIN). So VO=2.0+29.5E5*1E5 or 4.95V.
There is a ~2% discrepancy. You might look at
whether there is actually input bias current on the
op amp subcircuit (probe R2).
There may also be the "inputs" of limited gain (gain
error), common mode rejection and so on. On a good
real op amp these should be on the order of 0.01%
each. But we know nothing about the particular one
here.
