Fall 2008 AME451: Homework #5 1. A thermometer requires 1 min to indicate 98% of the response to a step input. a. Assuming the thermometer to be a first order system, find its time constant. b. If the thermometer is placed in a bath, the temperature of which is changing linearly at 10 deg/min, how much error does the thermometer show? 2. A closed-loop system transfer function has two dominant conjugate poles. Sketch the region in the left hand side of the complex plane (s-plane) where the complex poles should be located to meet the given specifications: a. 06 08 10 n .. , ≤ζ≤ ω ≤ b. 0 5 0 707 10 n , ω ≥ c. 05 5 n ., ζ ≥≤ ω d. 0 707 5 10 n ζ ≤≤ ω e. 6 n ζ ≥ω f. 0 5 0 707 6 d , 3.
