    A- For the feedback control system equation

    s³ +(1+k) s²+10s+(5+15k)=0

    The parameter k must be positive. What is the maximum value k can assume before the system becomes unstable? When k is equal to the maximum value, the system oscillates. Determine the frequency of oscillation.

    B- For the feedback control system equation

    s³ +(4+k) s²+6s+16+8k =0

    The parameter k must be positive. What is the maximum value k can assume before the system becomes unstable? When k is equal to the maximum value, the system oscillates. Determine the frequency of oscillation.

    C- The characteristic equation for a feedback control system is

    (s+2)(s²+4s+8)+ k =0

    Determine the range for k for which the system is stable.

    We can check the system's stability by using Routh's stability criterion
    Given polynomial 〖a_0 s〗^n+a_1 s^(n-1)+⋯+a_(n-1) s+a_n=0. Write the coefficients in the following Routh array:
    s^n a_0 a_2 a_4 a_6 ...
    s^(n-1) a_1 a_3 a_5 a_7 ...
    s^(n-2) b_1 b_2 b_3 b_4 ...
    s^(n-3) c_1 c_2 c_3 c_4 ...
    :
    s^2 d_1 d_2
    s^1 〖 e〗_1
    s^0 f_0
    where b_1=(a_1 a_2-a_0 a_3)/a_1 , b_2=(a_1 a_4-a_0 a_5)/a_1 , ...
    c_1=(b_1 a_3-a_1 b_2)/b_1 , c_2=(b_1 a_5-a_1 b_3)/b_1 , ...
    The system's stability is determined from the signs of the coefficients in the first columns.
