3.5 – 1 Laplace transform: Extra homework problems 1) Assume that the following system of two differential equations is given: u x x dt dx u x dt dx 1170 . 1 2381 . 2 8333 . 0 7 4048 . 2 2 1 2 1 1 - - = + - = Furthermore y = x 2 . The initial conditions are x 1 (0) = x 2 (0) = 0. a) Demonstrate that the two equations can be rearranged to one second-order differential equation. Hint: First solve the second equation for x 1 , then take the derivative and substitute in the first equation. b) Apply the Laplace transform to the second-order differential equation obtained in a), and solve for Y(s). The initial conditions are: y(0) = dy(0)/dt = 0 and u(0) = 0.
