Homework Help: Bode Plot problem (Please check my work )

  1. Mar 21, 2010 #1
    Bode Plot problem (Please check my work :))

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    This is actually a circuits question. It required to find Vo(s) in a network with Vi(t) being 1V (so Vi(s) was 1/s). It then asked to plot the magnitude of Vo for a range of frequencies (from 100 to 1000Hz).

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I did the question and had:
    From which:
    I factored out 6e-5 in the denominator and got:

    So I figured there is one real zero at 2000, a complex pole with [tex]\omega_{n}[/tex] being 4472.1 rad/s and [tex]\zeta[/tex] of 0.61 [got this from 5500/2/[tex]\omega_{n}[/tex]].
    There is also a DC gain of -20log(0.00667)=43.5 which kind of freaks me out because it's huge.

    So the graph will be 43.5 at w=0. Then it will rise 20dB/dec from 2000rad/s until 4472 rad/s, after which it will decline at -20dB/dec.
    Is this right?
