The purpose of this lab is to gain familiarity with using Multisim to construct and simulate the noninverting op amp, inverting op amp, adder, and differential amplifier circuits presented in the module. The effect of external biasing resistors will be demonstrated and calculations of output voltage performed in the homework will be confirmed. This lab will set the stage for the concept of confirming calculations with simulation software for the remainder of the course.
