Unformatted text preview: Laplace Transform PS April 9, 2011 Problem 1 Solve the following initial value problem y 00 + 2 y + y = 4 e- t , y (0) = 2 ,y (0) =- 1 . (1) Solution : Take the Laplace transform of both sides of the differential equation: s 2 Y- sy (0)- y (0) | {z } L { y 00 } +2 ( sY- y (0)) | {z } L { y } + Y |{z} L { y } = 4 s + 1 | {z } L { 4 e- t } . (2) Using the intial conditions, we have s 2 Y- 2 s + 1 + 2( sY- 2) + Y = 4 s + 1 , Solving for Y , we have Y ( s 2 + 2 s + 1) = 4 s + 1 + 2 s + 3 . Y = 4 ( s + 1)( s 2 + 2 s + 1) + 2 s + 3 s 2 + 2 s + 1 = 4 ( s + 1) 3 + 2 s + 3 ( s + 1) 2 . Take the inverse Laplace of both sides of the equation: L- 1 { Y } = y ( t ) = L- 1 4 ( s + 1) 3 + L- 1 2 s + 3 ( s + 1) 2 . For the first inverse Laplace, recall the s-shifting theorem: L t 2 = 2 s 3 L e at t 2 = 2 ( s- a ) 3 . Therefore, L- 1 4 ( s + 1) 3 = 2 L- 1 2 ( s + 1) 3 = 2 t 2 e- t . For the second inverse Laplace transform, write L- 1 2 s + 3 ( s + 1) 2 = L- 1 2( s + 1) + 1 ( s + 1) 2 = 2 L...
