Question 6 Explanation: 
\begin{aligned} \frac{Y(s)}{R(s)}&=\frac{s}{s+2} \\ y(t)&=A \cos (2t+\phi ), \\ r(t)&=\cos 2t \\ \because \;H(s) &=\frac{s}{(s+2)} \\ H(j\omega )&=\frac{j\omega }{j\omega +2} \\ |H(j\omega )| &=\frac{\omega }{\sqrt{\omega ^2+4 }} \\ \angle H(j\omega ) &=90^{\circ} -\tan ^{-1}\left ( \frac{\omega }{2} \right ) \\ \because \; \omega &= 2 \text{ (as given)}\\ |H(j\omega )| &=\frac{2}{\sqrt{4+4}}=\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} \\ |H(j\omega )| &=90^{\circ} -\tan ^{-1}(1)=45^{\circ} \\ \because \; \text{hence, }A &=1 \times |H(j\omega )|_{\omega =2}\\ &=1 \times \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}=0.707\\ \phi &= 45^{\circ} \end{aligned}
Question 7

Control Systems   Frequency Response Analysis
Question 7 Explanation: 
G(s)=\frac{100}{(s+1)^3}
G(j\omega )=\frac{100}{(1+j\omega )^3}
\;\;=\frac{100}{1+(j\omega )^3+3(j\omega )^2+3j\omega }
\;\;=\frac{100}{(1-3\omega^2 )+j(3\omega-\omega^3)}
\;\;=\frac{100[(1-3\omega^2 )+j\omega(3-\omega^2)^2]}{[ (1-3\omega^2 )+\omega^2(3-\omega^2)^2]}
For phase corssover frequency \omega_{ph} Img[G(j \omega )]=0;
Hence, \omega (3-\omega ^2)=0
\omega =0; \pm \sqrt{3}
Therefore, \omega _{ph}=\sqrt{3} rad/sec
Question 8
Consider a continuous-time system with input x(t) and output y(t) given by

Question 8 Explanation: 
\begin{aligned} y(t)&=x(t)\cos (t)\\ &\text{To check linearity,}\\ y_1(t)&=x_1(t)\cos (t)\\ &[y_1(t) \text{ is output for }x_1(t)]\\ y_2(t)&=x_2(t) \cos (t)\\ &[y_2(t) \text{ is output for }x_2(t)]\\ \text{so, the}& \text{ output for }(x_1(t)+ x_2(t)) \text{ will be}\\ y(t)&=[x_1(t)+ x_2(t)]\cos (t)\\ &=y_1(t)+y_2(t) \end{aligned}
So, the system is linear, to check time invariance.
The delayed output,
y(t-t_0)=x(t-t_0)\cos (t-t_0)
The output for delayed input,
y(t, t_0)=x(t-t_0)\cos (t)
Since, y(t-t_0)\neq y(t,t_0)
System is time varying.
