I have to solve an op amp circuit for a lab I'm doing but the circuit they have given me looks confusing (it's on page 46, http://filebox.vt.edu/users/oshekari/Manual_Student.pdf). Why does the 4.7k ohm resistor have an arrow pointing to the middle of the 100 ohm resistor? I know the 100ohm is a varying resistor but if I were to actual solve the circuit for output and leave the varying resistor at 100ohms would the 4.7k be connected to node 3 or to node 1? And if it is indeed connected to node 3 then how would I go about doing nodal analysis at that node since I don't know the current to the left of the node, I just have a voltage source.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Correct if I'm wrong but at node 3 the nodal equation is: 5/x+(v3-v1)/4.7k+v3/100. Where x is the resistance, v3 is the voltage at node 3, and v1 is the voltage at node 6.
