1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A linear inverting amplifier has these characteristics: -5.0V < vo < +5.0V Av=35 dB The output rails at -5.0V and +5.0V That is, the amplifier outputs no voltage larger in magnitude than 5.0V. What is the gain in V/V? What is the output if vi=-8.0V? 2. Relevant equations Av = vo/vi Av = 20log|Av| 3. The attempt at a solution Av = 35db 35/20 =log|Av| => Av = e^(7/4) V/V vo = Av * vi => (-8.0V) * e^(7/4) but since this is out of the -5V to 5V range, it would just be 5V Does this look right?
