    i want to test lm324 in this way:
    im using 1/4 op-amps. short circuit all other inputs(5,6,9,10,12,13) to the ground. connect 17 volt,.02 ampere to pin 4, 1k resistor to pin3 and 10 k resistor to pin2(with a same voltage sours 17 volt) and noe LED with a 1k resistor to pin one but LED doesnt lights on?why? i dont know.

    Why would you expect it to light? You are applying the same voltage to each input, just through a different resistor value, which has little effect on the voltage due to the high input impedance of the op amp. An op amp requires a slightly different voltage applied to each input to give a defined output level. Please read a tutorial about how op amps work to understand this.

    Post your circuit diagram.

    If you put another 10K on pin2 to negative of the 17V. Then the LED would light.

    See schematic.
