I have been assigned the task to design an active bandpass filter with a passband of 0.1 to 10 Hz. At these two frequencies, there should be an attenuation of -6dB or more. So far I have selected my circuit layout which can be seen below

I found my transfer function so that I could calculate the R and C values and then converted into jw form. From here, I used math to remove the imaginary numbers and now I have my transfer function in terms of w and the components.

My questions are as follows:

1. Is the w that I need to plug in the center frequency? So sqrt(0.1*10) = 1 Hz or would it be 1*2pi?

2. Have I set up my transfer function correctly for finding when 0.1 and 10 Hz will be -6db by setting it equal to 0.5?

3. If the above are true, in theory, do I just start plugging in values for the components to make the equation equal 0.5?
