If we use supply rails of +5V and 0V on the AD817 op amp, will the output swing
down to 0V.


The o/p head head room requirement from the supply rails can be a maximum of
1.8 Volts from the rails - therefore using 0V as the VE rail may only allow you
to swing to 1.8 Volts. In order to swing down to zero, you need dual +/-5 Volt
