**Determination of characteristic frequencies**

In this scheme there is only one reactive element, therefore, the resonance cannot occur. The only characteristic frequency is frequency of the maximum phase shift of the output voltage.

**Qualitative explanation of the received characteristics**

Input resistance

Input resistance

At DC (zero frequency) the capacitor is equivalent to the circuit break, current does not pass through it, and therefore, resistance is infinite.

At infinite frequency the capacitor has no time to charge/discharge and therefore, is equivalent to a wire. Therefore, the input resistance consists of the resistance of three-series connected resistors. Total 10k ohms +10k ohms + 10k ohms=30k ohms.

When the resistance is determined by the capacitor (low frequencies)- the shift phase will be -90

When the resistance is determined by resistors (high frequencies) – there is no shift phase because the current through active resistance is codirectional with the voltage drop on it.

All qualitative suggestions are shown in diagrams.

**Voltage transfer function**

The transfer function of the circuit only with passive elements cannot be more than one.

At low frequency the condenser is equal to the circuit break, therefore, input and output voltages coincide – transfer coefficient is equal to one.

At infinite frequency – the condenser is not taken into account and we see that output voltage is taken from one of the three series resistors. Therefore, transfer function should be equal 1/3. Phase characteristic. We assume that the test voltage source has zero phase shift then the phase of the transfer function is a phase of the output voltage.
