Module by: Carlos E. Davila. E-mail the author

## Exercises

1. Find the Laplace Transform of the following signals, for each case indicate the Laplace transform property that was used:
1. x(t)=4e-0.2tu(t)x(t)=4e-0.2tu(t)
2. x(t)=4te-0.2tu(t)x(t)=4te-0.2tu(t)
3. x(t)=4e-0.2(t-10)u(t-10)x(t)=4e-0.2(t-10)u(t-10)
4. x(t)=δ(t-5)x(t)=δ(t-5)
5. x(t)=10tu(t)x(t)=10tu(t)
6. x(t)=sin(10πt)u(t)x(t)=sin(10πt)u(t)
7. x(t)=e-3tsin(10πt)u(t)x(t)=e-3tsin(10πt)u(t)
8. x(t)=rect(t-0.5,1)x(t)=rect(t-0.5,1)
2. Suppose that two filters having impulse responses h1(t)h1(t) and h2(t)h2(t) are cascaded (i.e. connected in series). Find the transfer function of the equivalent filter assuming h1(t)=10e-10tu(t)h1(t)=10e-10tu(t) and h2(t)=5e-5tu(t)h2(t)=5e-5tu(t).
3. Find the inverse Laplace transforms of the following:
1. X(s)=e-2ss+5X(s)=e-2ss+5
2. X(s)=se-ss2+9X(s)=se-ss2+9
3. X(s)=1(s+3)2X(s)=1(s+3)2
4. X(s)=10X(s)=10
5. X(s)=10s2X(s)=10s2
6. X(s)=e-ssX(s)=e-ss
4. Use partial fraction expansions to find the inverse Laplace transforms of the following:
1. X(s)=s+2(s+5)(s+2)(s+1)X(s)=s+2(s+5)(s+2)(s+1)
2. X(s)=s+1(s+2)3(s+3)X(s)=s+1(s+2)3(s+3)
3. X(s)=s(s2+9)(s+2)X(s)=s(s2+9)(s+2)
4. X(s)=s2-3s+1(s+1)(s+2)X(s)=s2-3s+1(s+1)(s+2)
5. Consider a filter having impulse response h(t)=e-2tu(t)h(t)=e-2tu(t). Use Laplace transforms to find the output of the filter when the input is given by:
1. x(t)=u(t)x(t)=u(t)
2. x(t)=tu(t)x(t)=tu(t)
3. x(t)=e-4tu(t)x(t)=e-4tu(t)
4. x(t)=cos(10t)u(t)x(t)=cos(10t)u(t)
6. Indicate whether the following impulse responses correspond to stable or unstable filters:
1. h(t)=u(t)h(t)=u(t)
2. h(t)=e-3tu(t)h(t)=e-3tu(t)
3. h(t)=e-3tcos(4t)u(t)h(t)=e-3tcos(4t)u(t)
4. h(t)=cos(10t)u(t)h(t)=cos(10t)u(t)
7. Use Laplace transform tables to find the impulse response of the second-order lowpass filter in terms of ζζ and ΩnΩn for the overdamped, critically damped, and underdamped case.
8. Use a series RLC circuit to design a critically damped second-order lowpass filter with a corner frequency of 100 rad/sec. Use a R=6.8R=6.8 kΩΩ resistor in your design.
9. Using a 10 kΩΩ resistor, design a critically damped bandpass filter, having a center frequency of 100 rad/sec and indicate the resulting bandwidth of the filter. What is the quality factor of the filter?
10. Use bode plots to find the magnitude and phase response of the following filters
1. H(s)=1(s+1)3H(s)=1(s+1)3
(1)
2. H(s)=103ss+10s+103H(s)=103ss+10s+103
(2)

##### Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

##### What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

##### Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

##### What are tags?

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
