If you were to implement your high-pass filter in hardware, what considerations would you need to take into consideration?

ASSIGNMENT:

Active Filter Design Techniques

  1. Refer to Chapter 6 in the text as needed.
  2. Using the Fast, Practical Filter Design technique presented in section 6.3 design the following.  Be sure to show all work for full credit.
  1. Low-Pass Filter with critical frequency = 10kHz.
  2. High-Pass Filter with critical frequency = 10kHz.
  3. Narrow-Bandpass Filter with critical a band of 100kHz
  1. Create a MultiSIM schematic of each of your designs.  Provide a screenshot.
  2. Perform a simulation of each design to demonstrate the filter behavior.  Take a screenshot.
  3. From your simulation and screenshot in the above step, what is the gain in dB at the critical frequency for the low-pass filter and the high-pass filter?  What is the bandpass of the bandpass filter, and how did you determine it?
  4. If you were to implement your high-pass filter in hardware, what considerations would you need to take into consideration?  How would these considerations impact the performance and the extent to which you would meet specifications?  Be specific!  Provide specific examples of the issues you would encounter based on your specific initial design and actions you would need to take to finalize your design.  Is there anything you would have done differently to create your initial design in step 2 above if you had thought about an implementation in hardware from the beginning?
  5. Include all your calculations and screenshots in a Word Document with the title: “HW2_StudentID”, with your student id substituted in the file name.  Show all work for full credit.
  6. Upload file “HW2_StudentID”

 

LAB:

The purpose of this lab is to demonstrate how to use Multisim in order to produce Bode Plots via AC Analysis. This plot will allow for a determination of the range of frequencies for which an op-amp circuit operates optimally. Students will make adjustments to external bias resistors to determine the relationship between gain and frequency in op-amp circuits.

  1. Watch video Week 2 – Bode Plot
  2. Construct an Active Filter (An Op-Amp configuration presented in the video) in Multisim and compute the gain of the amplifier (in db – Decibels) for the following combinations of RF and RG.
  3. Perform AC Analysis to measure the gain of the amplifier (Use 5% resistor tolerances for simulation) and complete the table below:
RF RG Calculated OpAmp Gain (in db) = Vout/Vin Measured OpAmp Gain (in db) = Vout/Vin
2kΩ 10kΩ
2kΩ 20kΩ
2kΩ 40kΩ
10kΩ 5kΩ
20kΩ 5kΩ
40kΩ 5kΩ
  1. Take the screen shots of bode plot for each of the above combinations of RF and RG.
  2. For the Op-Amp Circuit, answer the following questions:
    1. Does the measured values of the gain match the calculated values? If not, explain why they are different?
    2. What is the cutoff frequency you measured from the simulation?
    3. Based on the cut off frequency, what type of active filter is constructed in this lab?
    4. From your measurements, explain how increase in RG affects the gain of the amplifier? How does bode plot change with increase in RG?
    5. From your measurements, explain how increase in RF affects the gain of the amplifier? How does bode plot change with increase in RF?
    6. What is the effect of resistor tolerance on the gain of the filter?
  3. Create a new word document called “Lab2_StudentID.docx” with your GID substituted into the file name.
  4. Verify all calculations from analysis and measurements from simulation. Save the results along with the table and paste the screen captures in the word document. Make sure to answer the questions.

Why is determining abnormal behavior or a mental disorder so difficult?

Assignment 3: Challenges in Identifying Mental Disorders

Most mental disorders lie on a continuum with “normal” behavior at one end. For example, nearly everyone has a fear of something, but it does not rise to the level of a phobia. A behavior may seem abnormal in one context but completely normal in another context. These two aspects show why it can be challenging to properly identify mental disorders.

Using your textbook and the Argosy University online library resources, research the principles and methods of identifying mental disorders. Note particularly the diversity of views and the challenges of identification. Based on your research, write a reflective essay. Use the following question to direct your thoughts and organize your essay:

  • Why is determining abnormal behavior or a mental disorder so difficult?

To develop your essay, keep in mind issues such as the role of social norms in defining the abnormal, the multiplicity of indicators of what is abnormal, the stigma suffered by those identified as abnormal, and finally the need for objectivity in dealing with the concept.

Write a 2–3-page essay in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

Where does Stauffer believe students get their ideas for their musical creations?

Read the two articles by Sandra Stauffer (an ASU music education professor). As before, write a 250-500 word response using the questions below to guide your thinking. Post your response here.

  • Where does Stauffer believe students get their ideas for their musical creations?
  • What are the connections between what Stauffer says about students’ composition processes and what we have read from previous authors (Levitin, Small, Sacks, Bernstein)?
  • What is a “core narrative”? What does Stauffer believe is the core narrative in music education? Do you agree?
  • How has this view of music education been reflected, or not, in your own experience with learning music?
  • How does Stauffer believe we can begin to re-frame and re-place music education? How might you contribute?

The goal of this project is for you to utilize all of the topics you have learned throughout this course in a real world situation

Final Project
The goal of this project is for you to utilize all of the topics you have learned throughout this course in a real world situation. In order to complete this project by the end of Unit VIII, you should be spending time on it each week that you are in the course.
You are the senior operations manager for a mid-sized insurance company. One of your smaller competitors (also an insurance company) has been hit hard due to many claims from a recent major storm. The company has also made some bad investments and is in financial trouble. Your boss has called you in to tell you that they plan on buying out this firm and integrating their business, and he needs you to develop the internal executive proposal that outlines a plan for integrating the smaller company into your current company’s current organizational model. Your job is to come up with an organizational plan to create a smooth merger of the two companies. From start to finish, develop a proposal ‘for internal use only’ that explains how the company should proceed.
Your boss tells you that the main goal of your proposal is to minimize behavioral resistance to change at both companies, to include clients, leadership, and subordinates. Include recommendations, such as activities, communications, and corporate meetings/events, in each related area of organizational behavior that will help with this merger. Be sure to cite theories from your textbook and at least three peer-reviewed, scholarly articles written in the organizational behavior field within the last three to five years to support your proposed ideas. Your paper should consist of a minimum of two pages. Please be sure to cite all references, including your textbook, in proper APA format.
Be sure to cover each of the following content areas:
 Improving Perceptions   Work-Related Stress  Employee Motivation  Rational Choice Paradigm  Team Processes  Channels Of Communication   Organizational Culture And Power  Ethical Issues  Organizational Structure
