    I just need some confirmation on 3 questions


    1. I was asked to calculate the poles and zeros. I believe

    zeros: none
    poles: 2 (or p1,2) = -1

    2. I was also asked to calculate the slope of the magnitude response was w -> 0
    Here is my sketched graph

    From my pic, it shows that as w -> 0, H(s) -> 0.

    3. What type of filter response does this network exhibit.
    I believe it will be a Low Pass because as

    s->0, H(s) -> 1 and as s-> infinity, H(s) -> 0?

    Does this reasoning make it a low pass filter, high pass, band stop or band pass?

    Any help is appreciated

    As w increases, s=jw will also increase. s is in the denominator so as s increases, the denominator also increases, so as s becomes bigger, \frac{1}{s^2} will become smaller and smaller and smaller. So near 0 rad/s (or Hz) you will have some useful response, but as you move further away (toward infinity), the response will sharply drop.

    Thanks! I used the same reasoning as you wrote, however I was not too sure I got it right.

    Could you also double check my calculations on this problem also?

    MOD NOTE: You already have an active thread on this other problem.

    Please -- one thread per problem (and, ideally, one problem per thread).
