16. An oscillator circuit using ideal op-amp and diodes is shown in the figure. The time duration for positive part of the cycle is Δt1 and for negative part is Δt2. The value of will be _____________.

17. Consider the oscillator circuit shown in the figure. The function of the network (shown in dotted lines) consisting of the 100 kΩ resistor in series with the two diodes connected back-to-back is to: 1. introduce amplitude stabilization by preventing the op-amp from saturating and thus producing sinusoidal oscillations of fixed amplitude
2. introduce amplitude stabilization by forcing the opamp to swing between positive and negative saturation and thus producing square wave oscillations of fixed amplitude
