Butterworth Filter RLC LPF

I was trying to construct a second order passive Butterworth filter using the circuit below: The Specification required the load R to be 1ohm and cut-off frequency to be at 1rad/s. I derived the Transfer Function to be: Butterworth filter requires the 3db point to be on the corner frequency which is given by: I do not know how to choose the values of C and L to match all these requirements. Please, can you give me mathematical proof of how you obtained the answers?

• Realize your question is academic and that in practice you use a table for a LC values. You can find what complex poles you need here 2n3904blog.com/butterworth-filter – sstobbe May 29 '17 at 13:51

A butterworth filter has a damping ratio (zeta or $\zeta$) of 0.7071 and this is the missing piece of your jigsaw. So rearrange your TF to be like this: -
$\dfrac{V_O}{V_I}=\dfrac{\frac{1}{LC}}{s^2+\frac{s}{CR}+\frac{1}{LC}}$
This is now of the standard form where $2\zeta\omega_n= \frac{1}{CR}$ and $\frac{1}{LC}=\omega_n^2$.
So now you have a way to calculate C because you know $\omega_n$ and you now know what $\zeta$ is for a butterworth filter (of any order).
