C++ Question

With the,

Sampling Freq: 10kHz

Cut-off Freq: 1kHz

How do I actually calculate the coefficients for the difference equation below?

I know the difference equation will be in this form, but do not know how to actually work out and come up with the numbers for the coefficients b0, b1, b2, a1, a2

`y(n) = b0.x(n) + b1.x(n-1) + b2.x(n-2) + a1.y(n-1) + a2.y(n-2)`

I will eventually be implementing this LPF in C++ but I need to know how to actually calculate the coefficients first before I can get anywhere with it

Here you go. ff is the frequency ratio, 0.1 in your case:

```
const double ita =1.0/ tan(M_PI*ff);
const double q=sqrt(2.0);
b0 = 1.0 / (1.0 + q*ita + ita*ita);
b1= 2*b0;
b2= b0;
a1 = 2.0 * (ita*ita - 1.0) * b0;
a2 = -(1.0 - q*ita + ita*ita) * b0;
```

and the result is:

b0=0.0674553

b1=0.134911

b2=0.0674553

a1=1.14298

a2=-0.412802
