# Linear Integrated Circuit MCQ [Free PDF] – Objective Question Answer for Linear Integrated Circuit Quiz

21. An amplifier in which the output voltage is equal to an average input voltage?

A. Summing amplifier
B. Weighting amplifier
C. Scaling amplifier
D. Averaging amplifier

An averaging amplifier can be used as an averaging circuit, in which the output voltage is equal to the average of all the input voltages.

22. Find out the gain value by which each input of the averaging amplifier is amplified? ( Assume there are four inputs)

A. 0.5
B. 0.25
C. 1
D. 2

In an averaging amplifier, the gain by which each input is amplified must be equal to the lower number of inputs.

=> RF /R =1/n , where n=number of inputs

∴ RF /R=1/4 = 0.25 (Four inputs)

So, each input in the averaging amplifier must be amplified by 0.25.

23. 3v, 5v, and 7v are the three input voltages applied to the inverting input terminal of the averaging amplifier. Determine the output voltage?

A. -5v
B. -10v
C. -15v
D. -20v

The output voltage,

Vo = -[(Va+Vb+Vc)/3]

= -[(3+5+7)/3] =-5v.

24. The following circuit represents an inverting scaling amplifier. Compute the value of RoM and VO?

A. VO = -0.985v ; RoM = 111.11Ω
B. VO = -2.567v ; RoM = 447.89Ω
C. VO = -1.569v ; RoM = 212.33Ω
D. VO = -1.036v ; RoM = 320.56Ω

VO = – {[(RF/Ra)×Va]+[(RF/Rb)×Vb] + [(RF/Rc)×Vc]}

= – {[(10kΩ/1kΩ)×3.3mv] + [(10kΩ/1.25kΩ)×5mv] +

[(10kΩ/820Ω)×7.9mv]} = -1.036v.

RoM = [Ra||Rb||Rc||RF]

= [(Ra×Rb)/(Ra+ Rb)] || [(Rc×RF)/( Rc+ RF)] =

[(1kΩ×1.25kΩ)/(1kΩ+1.25kΩ)] || [(820Ω×10kΩ)/(820Ω+10kΩ)] =

555.55||757.85

=[(555.55 ×757.85)/(555.55+757.85)] = 320.56Ω.

25. Which type of amplifier has output voltage equal to the average of all input voltages?

A. Inverting averaging amplifier
B. Non-inverting averaging amplifier
C. Non-inverting summing amplifier
D. Inverting scaling amplifier

In a non-inverting averaging amplifier, the non-inverting input voltage is the average of all inputs, with a positive sign.

26. Expression for output voltage of non-inverting summing amplifier with five input voltage?

A. Vo = 5×( Va + Vb+ Vc+ Vd+ Ve)
B. Vo = [1+( Rf/R1)]× ( Va + Vb+ Vc+ Vd+ Ve)
C. Vo = Va + Vb+ Vc+ Vd+ Ve
D. Vo = ( Va + Vb+ Vc+ Vd+ Ve) /5

The output voltage of the non-inverting summing amplifier is (1+ ( Rf / R1 )) times the average of all input voltages in the circuit.

Since there are five input voltages => (1+ ( Rf / R1 )) =5

Therefore, Vo = 5 × ( Va + Vb+ Vc+ Vd+ Ve) /5

=> Vo = (Va + Vb+ Vc+ Vd+ Ve).

27. Find the value of V1 in the circuit shown below?

A. 4v
B. 2v
C. 3v
D. None of the mentioned

Using the superposition theorem the voltage V1 at non-inverting terminal is

V1 = Va/4 + Vb/4+ Vc/4+ Vd/4

= [Va + Vb+ Vc+ Vd] /4

= [4+(-3v)+6v+(-1v) ] /4 = 1.5v.

28. If the gain of a non-inverting averaging amplifier is one, determine the input voltages if the output voltage, if the output voltage is 3v?

A. V1 =6v ,V2=3v and V3=2v
B. V1 =9v ,V2=5v and V3=-4v
C. V1 =8v ,V2=-6v and V3=1v
D. V1 =7v ,V2=4v and V3=-3v

As the output voltage = Average of all input voltage = sum of input voltage /3

∴ sum of input voltage =3×3=9.

From the given option, the combination of input voltage 7v, 4v, and -3v gives the value 9v.

29. In the circuit shown, supply voltage = ±15v, Va= +3v , Vb= -4v , Vc= +5v, R= R1= 1kΩ and RF= 2kΩ. 741 op-amp has A= 2×105 and R1= 10kΩ. Determine the output voltage internal resistance of the circuit?

A. Vo ≅3v , RiF=6.67MΩ
B. Vo ≅3v , RiF= 7MΩ
C. Vo ≅3v , RiF=9.2MΩ
D. Vo ≅3v , RiF= 3.5MΩ

The output voltage

Vo= [1 + (RF/R1)] × [ (Va+Vb+Vc/3)]

= [1+(2kΩ/1kΩ)] ×[(3-4+5)/3]= 2.67 ≅ 3v.

Internal resistance of circuit, RiF =R i [A×R1/ (R1+ RF)] =

100Ω×[(200000×1kΩ)/(1kΩ+2kΩ)]

=> RiF= 6.67 MΩ.

30. Find the type of amplifier that cannot be constructed in differential configuration?

A. Summing amplifier
B. Scaling amplifier
C. Averaging amplifier
D. Subtractor

In differential op-amp configuration, an amplifier produces the sum or difference between two input terminals of the op-amp. So, averaging is not possible in this type of configuration.

Output voltage of a subtractor

Vo = Vnon-inverting terminal – Vinverting terminal

= 12mv-7mv =5mv.

32. How many additional sources are connected to each input terminal to obtain an eight-input summing amplifier?

A. Six

An eight-input summing amplifier can be constructed using a basic differential amplifier if six additional input sources are used by connecting three input sources to inverting and non-inverting input terminals through resistors.

33. Calculate the output voltage for the summing amplifier given below, where R=2kΩ and RL =10kΩ.

A. 4v
