[2 points] Identify which transfer function is underdamped, which is critically damped, and which is overdamped. c.) [1 point] For the overdamped transfer function, find the exponential time constants ( 1 and 2 ) which would appear in the time domain solution for the response to a step input. d.) [1 point] For the critically damped transfer function, find the exponential time constant ( ) which would appear in the time domain solution for the response to a step input. e.)
