(a) (20 points) Use the graphical construction method to construct the approximate magnitude asymptotes of k Z(s) k.
(b) (20 points) Use the graphical construction method to construct the approximate magnitude asymptotes of k G(s) k, where G(s) = V2 (s)/V1 (s).
(c) (10 points) Write an analytical expression for the approximate G(s) that corresponds to
the magnitude asymptotes you constructed in part (b). On semilog axes, construct the
phase asymptotes for this G(s), and label all break frequencies and asymptote slopes.
For both of the above magnitude plots:
• Construct the magnitude asymptotes on semilog paper, to scale
• Give analytical expressions (in terms of L, R1 , R2 , etc.) for each asymptote, corner
frequency, and Q–factor as appropriate
• Give numerical values for each asymptote slope, corner frequency, and for the Q–factor

Design an op-amp inverting amplifier circuit having the Bode plot magnitude asymptotes
shown in Fig. 2. You should specify realizations of the impedances in the standard inverting amplifier circuit, using only resistors and capacitors. Specify all resistor and capacitor
