HOMEWORK No. 3b — LAPLACE TRANSFORMS
1.0
Exercise 3.1.
Note
:
You may use standard integration tables to solve the integrals that you pose. Do
not use Table 3.1 of the textbook.
2.0
Exercise 3.4.
Hint 1
:
Split the interval of integration [0,
] used in the definition of the Laplace
∞
transform into a series of connected subintervals. For example, in part 3.4(a) utilize the
integration subintervals [0, 2], [2, 6], and [6,
], and then express the integral from 0 to
∞
∞
as the sum of three integrals (each one corresponding to one integration subinterval).
Use
integration tables
to solve the resulting integrals.
Hint 2
:
The approach of Hint 1 is preferred for this exercise; however, there is an
alternative way to obtain a solution in a very effective
fashion using step functions and
delayed step functions.
A step function
S
(t) is defined by the equation
S
(t)
=
0
τ< 0

τ≥ 0
and a delayed step function (where the function is delayed by a timevalue
