2. Find Kv.
3. Sketch Bode and Nyquist plots.
4. Find K so that zeta=sqrt(2)/2 for the closed loop system.
5. Find phase and gain margins for this K.
6. Sketch the step and ramp responces of the closed loop system for this K.
7. Discuss the connection between Kv, zeta, margins and the responce of the closed loop system.
