Simple resonant circuit, description.
Amplification, Q, form factors
(Discussion of how ideal filters provide the signal until the break frequency/cies and then provide total attenuation. That is they look like a for low pass filter, where u(w) is the unit step function or Heaviside function. That is they have infinite drop off at the cutoff frequency. How this is not possible. Pretty diagrams of all the filters Low Pass, High Pass, Band Pass, Band Stop.)
This section introduces first order butterworth low pass and high pass filters. An understanding of Laplace Transforms or at least Laplace Transforms of capacitors, inductors and resistors.
Transforming the Resistor and Capacitor to the Laplace domain we get:
- R and .
Expressing using terms of .
The transfer function is
For the Frequency Domain we put
The magnitude is
and the angle is
As increases decreases so this circuit must represent low pass filter.
Using the -3 dB definition of band width.
Which gives the general form of a low pass butterworth filter as:
, where k is the order of the filter and is the cut-off frequency.

If all the component of the circuit are transformed into the Laplace Domain. The resistor becomes and the inductor becomes . Using voltage divider rule below is reached.
If is transformed into the frequency domain by putting .
Which has a magnitude of
and an angle of
- (cut-off frequency is w (R/L)^0.5)
