1:Consider the van de Vusse reactor, which has the following state space model at the nonminimum-phase operating point:


Find the sample time that will bring the zero (discrete time) that is outside the unit circle to the unit circle. Compare the discrete-step response for this sample time with the continuous system step response.

2:Consider the first-order process (where the time unit is minutes and the gain is °C/%)
