observing that the terms 1 /(8 + 3) and 1 /(8 + 3)2 can be realized with a cascade of two
subsystems, each having a transfer function 1/(8 + 3), as shown in Fig. 6.28. Each of the
three first-order transfer functions in Fig. 6.28 may now be realized as in Fig. 6.23. •

Vx(s), t he v oltage a t t he i nput of t he o p amp, is zero (very small) because of t he
