This circuit shows a current source. The current through the load is the same regardless of the position of the switch.
The op-amp attempts to keep the voltages at both terminals the same, so V– = V+. Call V1 the voltage across R1, and I1 the current across R1. Then V2 = V4. Since I1 = I2 and R1 = R2, V1 = V2 = V4.
V– = V+ = V1 - 5V
I3 = V+/R3 = (V1 - 5V)/R3.
I4 = I3 + Iload.
I4 = V4/R4 = V1/R3.
V1/R3 = (V1 - 5V)/R3 + Iload
Iload = 5V / R3 = 1.67 mA
