I have the equation attached.
I derived this transfer function. how do I obtain the 3dB bandwidth from this?

1. You need to find max gain for given R & C values.
2. Subtract 3dB gain from max gain
3. Solve for the w for given R, C & calculated 3dB point

This is my theoretical approach...I am unsure though

I don't think it has a 3dB point. 1/s is factorable from your equation, which is a pole at the origin. The gain is infinite at DC. How much is ∞ - 3dB?

Can you take another stab at attaching the images that did not make it into your post? It appears that the failed links are pointing to files on your local machine.

Do you think there is more than an equation, or can't you see it?

Maybe it's in your derivation that the problem lies. Why don't you show the circuit from which you derived the transfer function, plus your work in doing the derivation?

Creating a Bode plot is the simplest I guess.

I'm thinking there is more than just the equation, which I can see. I see six failed links because they were links to the OP's local computer.

I can't see any failed links. Can you see them because you're a super-mod?

All those links in the OPs message failed.
