    The NAND question and the first part of Op Amp confused me

    I also thought there was a lack of actual electronics strangely enough.

    I found it ok, as i had revised, but the only one which i want too sure was the voltage question at pin3 on the op-amp. I was gonna use the standard potential difference fomula (P=IV) but decided to use the gain one. Which i thought afterwards sounded a bit dodgy :eek:

    all the actual electronics stuff was easy (op-amp, NAND, etc) but there was far too much wordy stuff, a lot more than usual. The flow chart question was very vague. What were we supposed to write about?!
