Given the root locus shown in Figure P8.7, [Section: 8.5] a. Find the value of gain that will make the system marginally stable. b. Find the value of gain for which the closed-loop transfer function will have a pole on the real axis at 5.
Chapter 6: Designing Classes 6.3 Introduction to coupling and cohesion The term coupling refers to the interconnectedness of classes. Our aim is to design our applications as a set of cooperating classes that communicate via well-defined interfaces. The degree of coupling indicates how tightly these classes are connected. We strive for a low degree of coupling, or loose coupling. The degree of coupling determines how hard it is to make changes in an application. In a tightly coupled system, a change to one class may require additional changes to other classes else the application may not work as designed or not at all. In a loosely coupled system, a change to one class does not require any changes to the other classes, and the application will still work. The term cohesion relates
