Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ME major here that's very confused about the integrating op-amp. It's pretty simple what I am confused about, just unit problems.

Suppose you have the following integrating op-amp circuit:

Feedback capacitor: 10μF

Input Resistance: 10kΩ

Input Voltage: 5V[sin(100t)]

My problem arises with the units here. For an integrating op-amp the output voltage can be shown to be vo=-τ∫vi*dt . The time constant obviously has units of Hz or s^-1. However for any oscillatory input, the integration results in another oscillatory output which carries the time units inside the trig function which doesn't allow those units to cancel those of s^-1, leading to output "voltage" having units of V/s. What am I missing here? How am I wrong? I appreciate any help in advance!
