    A process has a transfer function: {see attached} and is included in a unity feedback loop with a proportional controller Kp in a feedforward branch of the control loop.
    (a) Sketch a Nyquist contour for this system
    (b) Apply the Nyquist stability criterion to find a suitable range of K for stable closed loop system behaviour.
    (c) Verify the above stability result using a Routh-Hurwitz analysis.
    (d) From the Nyquist contour, estimate the phase margin, and briefly describe how it relates to the stability of the system.
