by two boundaries described by ±e t . The associated time constant is 1/ = 0.33, which is larger
than the time constant of A. Therefore, A has the fastest convergence.
19. Consider a second order system having a pair of complex poles at 3 ± 4j . What are the damping
ratio ⇣ and undamped natural frequency !n ?
Solution: The undamped natural frequency !n is the distance between the origin and the pole

ratio is given by sin where is the angle between the imaginary axis and the line connecting the
origin and the pole
