Solution Preview

From the diagram we get the following (approximately... I had to "eye-ball" some of these readings!)

- It's a second-order system
- Because of the overshoot, the system is probably "under-damped", but not a whole lot since there are no oscillations!
- DC Gain= k = 1 since the output amplitude follows the input amplitude.
- For the step-functions at both t=1 ...

Solution Summary

The solution explains how to glean information from the diagrams presented about the heating process as well as the calculations necessary to derive approximate frequency specifications from the given graphs.
