### The zero-input and zero-state response of a circuit consisting only of a dc source and a capacitor?

From my understanding, the zero-input and zero-state responses of an RC circuit can be found by solving for the homogenous and particular solution of the ordinary differential equation found using ...

### Exciting an RC Circuit at its TRUE Pole on the Sigma (Real) Axis in the Left-Half Plane

Yeah, you probably are reading this question and thinking I'm one of those engineers who hasn't learned about the s-plane. I can assure you I'm not! I know that the transfer function of an RC circuit (...

### Settling time in 2nd order response (circuit)

I understand the definition of settling time defined as "time took to reach within +-2% (or 5) of the converged value". Then does it mean settling time cannot be defined when the response converges to ...

### How do I find the second order transfer function from this response graph?

I am trying to find the second order transfer function from this response graph, however since I can't find the correct overshoot value I'm stuck. The graph runs from 0 to 10 seconds and starts at 1 ...

### Help needed using convolution to calculate a system's impulse response

I have a circuit with the transfer function $G(s) = \frac{1}{(s+1)^2}$ and I'm asked to calculate the impulse response of the circuit. After looking into it I know that I need to use convolution ...

### A very basic question about response time of an instrument

Regarding a temperature transducer, what is meant by response time in this context? It says it can be set to < 30 ms or < 300 ms. Is there any trade of between choosing low or high response time?...

### Why a system is causal if the impulse response is zero for $t<0$?

I was reading a definition that Suppose $h(t)$ is the impulse response of any system $Y$, then the system is causal if and only if $h(t)=0$ for $\forall t<0$ I know what a causal ...

### Impulse response of a LTI TD system

Why the impulse response of this system: $y(n)=\sum_{|k|\leq3}^{}x(n-k)$ is: $h(n)=\sum_{|k|\leq3}^{}\delta(n-k)$ and the impulse response of this one: $y(n)=\sum_{k=0}^{+\infty}x(n-k)$ is:...

### How is the impulse response related to pole/zero-plot?

I have trouble understanding how you can from a pole/zero-plot say something about the impulse response. For instance I have 2 poles in (-5 +/- 8 jw) and a zero in 0. How would I know, from just ...

### Understanding Lead in a causal system

I've gone through school and done all the work but looking back at it i still don't quite get it. The rule is current in a capacitor leads and in an inductor lags. The inductor makes perfect sense ...
