Refer to the block diagram in Fig. 2-20. If A V = 50 and B = 0.01, will the circuit oscillate? If not, calculate the required value of A V.


Refer again to Fig. 2-20. If A V = 50 and B = 0.04, will the circuit oscillate?


Refer again to Fig. 2-20. If B = -0.05, what value of A V is required to sustain oscillations?


Refer to Fig. 2-20. Assume A V = 100 and B = 0.01. Calculate v fb if V out = 30 V p-p
