It is customary to use -3dB to define a filter, because it is the half-power point.May I know why your showing the curve at -3db. Do we need to measure always at -3db?.

The project itself not clear to me, that's why I can't able to share you. Again sorry for the inconvenience.At least tell us what the project does - that would help!

Yes, I understand from your point of you, you and your team are here to help the students like me. I will update here when I understand the project.hi pp,
I am sure we would all like to help you, but how will you know when the answers that are posted will solve the problem or not, if you do not know what the problem is...??

corr typo!
Actually though when talking about the damping factor and response it is not really necessary to know the topology. The damping factor is related to the L and C and any R's in the circuit, but because the damping factor is a function of the L and C and all R's if we know that we know the response already so we can talk abotu the response without knowing the actual values or even how it is connected as long as it is second order.At least tell us what the project does - that would help!
The -3db point on a frequency curve is the usual point to talk about because it is a defacto standard in the electrical industry. It's origin goes way back to when telegraph was still in it's infancy.May I know why your showing the curve at -3db. Do we need to measure always at -3db?.
Hi,@MrAl Are you talking about bandpass filters?
I was confused how a lowpass filter (the original subject) could have two -3dB points, then I realised.Sometimes, why do you ask?
Oh ok sure. I was just talking about -3db points in general, how they seem to be standard for comparisons of various filter types including LP, HP, and BP, even BS.I was confused how a lowpass filter (the original subject) could have two -3dB points, then I realised.
I just thought I'd clarify it.
I would like to design the filter that will cut of the frequency above 5kHz. So, I have designed RLC circuit. Please can you have a look and tell me that the circuit design is correct or not?.The -3db point on a frequency curve is the usual point to talk about because it is a defacto standard in the electrical industry.

In filter theory it is most often a measure of the half amplitude frequency response of the filter but sometimes it is a measure of the half power of the response. The reference is usually the highest peak of the response.
It makes comparing filters somewhat of a standard procedure although sometimes more information is needed.
It allows us to compare bandwidths very efficiently too as well as cutoff frequency.
For example, if we have one filter that has -3db point at 100Hz and the other at 200Hz we know that one filter has lower output than the other for frequencies 100Hz and above if it is a low pass filter.
For another example if we have one filter that has two -=3bb points at 100 and 200 Hz and the otehr at 120Hz and 180Hz we know the second filter has a sharper response than the first.
So the -3db point(s) are a convenient way to compare filters and when a filter specification is given in terms of bandwidth we know they mean the -3db points. They are also sometimes called the "3db down points".
As to the request for the circuit itself, we know that when talking about damping factor we dont actually need a circuit so dont worry about that unless you have other questions that would require a circuit or a response other than 2nd order.
Of course if you want to know how the R, L and C produce a damping factor then we need to know the circuit and the values of all the components. Even so, we can look at a few different circuits if you dont have one in mind just yet. The common circuits are series and parallel with or without load. It's not too hard to talk about all of these really.
still no load resistor (the load resistor goes across C1)I would like to design the filter that will cut of the frequency above 5kHz. So, I have designed RLC circuit. Please can you have a look and tell me that the circuit design is correct or not?.

The output load is 30Gohm.Hi
Please post your asc file.
BTW: what load will you have on the Output.?

Without load resistor can't we design the filter.As you demonstrated very well in post #30, if you don’t use a lower value load resistor, you get ridiculous values for the components.
Absolutely true - decide on the value of the load resistor that you wish to use, then enter the figures into the equations in post #22, along with “5000” for the frequency.Without resistor can't we design the filter.
