operational amplifier Answered

i need someone that can tell me what an operational amplifier is. ive been googling these shenanigans for the better part of a day and cant seem to find anything other than technical diagrams. i just want to know, generally, what they do, what theyre used for, and where i would find one inside something in my house. im actually really pissed off right now, every page ive read tells me how important they are, and exactly how they work, and that they are used "in a wide variety of electronics", and that they have "nearly infinite uses" but no one seems to say "hey, here's where you might be able to find one, and here's what it will be doing" anyone got any answers to this. and so help me god, if i see any schematics posted with that little triangle that ive been staring at all day, i might set someones house on fire. (not mine, of course....but someones.....)

i realized later, after i posted this, that my tone may not have been entirely conducive to getting a response. Note to self: dont ask forum questions late at night while frustrated. although i did, eventually, figure out what an op amp is, more or less. only took a year of physics and engineering classes to understand (kinda) what they do.
