    I am using the below schematic for a OpAmp TLC272CP. According to the
    formula of G = (R1/R2) the gain on this circuit should only be a matter
    of 11. however as you can see below it's closer to 15/16. I'm
    wondering what could cause this anomoly. I have put the circuit
    below(sorry for the Ascii) and what i put into the + of the opamp and
    what i got as output.

    R1 = 1k
    R2 = 10k
    R3 = 10k

    G = (R1+R2)/R1 = 11

    According to the datasheet, that op-amp has a 1mV typical input offset

    Try a larger input voltage e.g. 20mV or 200mV.

    Such questions should be cross-posted to avoid stupid duplication and waste
    of time.

    Get rid of R3.

    Also, try making a few measurements, and plotting the output vs input for
    input = .5, .4, .3, .2, .1... That might give you a clue as to what is
