Homework Help: Design of Band Reject Filter

  1. May 19, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Which is the correct frequency response graph for this question? The first graph or the second one?

    Band reject implies that it passes everything, except frequencies in the band. Looking at just the positive side: If it is less than pi/3 then it is 1. If it is greater than 2pi/3 then it is also 1. Elsewhere is zero. Well elsewhere is inbetween pi/3 and 2pi/3 (the band to be rejected). Since there is absolute value, you will have a mirror image of the band response across the axis.

    Which of the graphs fit this description?

    The second graph fits the description.
