Yfls} is the Laplace transform of the solution to the initial value problem y'if}=1flf(t} with y(fl} =n Find an expression for Y[s].


(C) By writing
1 +p 3, as the infinite series
1 - e-38
1 te-38
= [(-1)' (e-378 - e-3(j+1)8 )
find the solution of the initial value problem of part (B) in a form using the infinite
series. The following result may be helpful:
Clu(t - a)g(t - a)} = e-asCig(t) }
where a is a constant and u(t) is the Heaviside step function.
(D) A beam of length 6 units is clamped at the ends r = 0 and r = 6. Suppose we apply a
load of 162 units at r = 2. Then the deflection 2(r) satisfies the differential equation
d' z
= 162 6(x - 2)
where o is the Dirac Delta function. Use Laplace transforms to find the solution of this
differential equation when the boundary conditions are
=(0) = ='(0) = 0, 2"(0) = 144, 2"(0) = -120
Note that Co(x - 2)} = e-2. Some of the Laplace transforms given in part (C) may
be useful.
