1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations See below 3. The attempt at a solution Root Locus? Easy Peasy right? Based on provided equation G(s), i solved the coordinates of the root locus diagram using quadratic equation. For the 2nd part of the question, i have to find gain at which rise time is 1 second. With previous sample questions, we would use s^2 + 2zWs + W^2 for the 2nd order denominator to finish the question based on given parameters (ie dampening ratio, percentage overshoot etc). How do i deal with the numerator?
