Prior Calculations:
Consider the circuit in figure 1.1 and follow the steps given below:
1. Write down the values of the three resistors:
R1 =                   R2 =                    R3 =
2. If V2 = 0, what will be the expression for VO?
VO′ =
3. If V1 = 0, what will be the expression for VO?
VO″ =
4. According to superposition principle, VO = VO′ + VO″. Write down the expression for VO:
VO =
