    I had a school assignment to submit i understand the two rule of an ideal and practical use of op-am. The properties of non-inverting, inverting and summing amplifier. but i am struggling with my assignment, which require your help. I was given ten option to choose i pick option 6. the question is: Given that the pressure sensor produces an output voltage (Vs :sensor output voltage) according to the equation Vs = (Px0.131)+1.683. This equation can be expressed in terms of pressure (P) versus sensor voltage (vs)i.e P=(vs – 1.683)/0.131 You are to design the amplifier circuit for this sensor using any combination of inverting amplifier, non inverting amplifier, summing amplifier together with a 1V reference voltage source. The two input signals of this circuit are sensor voltage (Vs) and an 1V reference source (Vref) and the circuit should produce an output voltage (Vo) indicating the pressure (PSI) according to the equation Vo = P(PSI) i.e When P=0PSI, Vo=OV When P=10PSI, Vo=10V When P= -10PSI, Vo= -1OV

    Okay. So what is your question?

    You say you picked option 6. Are we supposed to be mind readers and simply know what option 6 is?

    Here's a concept: YOU need to show YOUR best attempt to answer YOUR homework.

    Do you mean you had to choose a question from a list of 10 questions and you chose question 6 from the list.?

    Can we see your attempt at the answer?

    Hint: there are two things you need your opamp(s) to do:
    1) scale a value,
    2) sum two values.
    Consider how you will configure the opamp(s) to achieve those functions.

    but how do I find the RF and other resistor values?

    you draw some circuits, write equations and solve them.

    The thread's title is wrong. He is tasked to use an op amp (or many).

    Block diagram maybe? That would help to get a schematic I think.

    most basic opamp circuits are just inverting and non-inverting amplifier (the only simpler one is voltage follower).
    circuits are simple and once the gain is derived, it is easy to see which one is to be used.

    Hi, do you have any reference for your this project.

    I doubt the OP has any interest in this now, Ricky. The thread is nearly a year old!

    What kind of reference are you looking for? A complete circuit that you can copy and turn in as your own?

    See post #5. Where are your efforts so far?

    Just decompose your equation into templates for opamp modules.

    Here, it is

    Vout = k x (Vin - V0).

    So it is a non inverting amplifier for k > 1 (solutions exist if k is less than 1).

    You just need to rewrite it to match the templates.
