Help with LM741 op-amp? Answered
Just to test it out, I hooked up a voltage follower with a LM741 Op-amp. But, when I measure the voltages, it doesn't work.
When I have problems with such simple circuits, it makes me want to kick a small animal.
Please, save the small animals, help me with my circuit.
When I measure Vout, I expected something somewhere around 7-8 volts, but I'm actually getting 13-14 volts.
I also tried changing the resistors in the voltage divider, but the output did not change.
I'm getting my power from an unregulated 12v 1A wall transformer, but I measured it at around 15v unloaded.
I replaced the chip once to rule out static electricity as the problem, and I got an output 0.1 volt higher.
