Find the Fourier tranform of $f(x)=x^2e^{-x^2}$

In a previous question when I found the Fourier transform of $f(x) =e^{-x^2}$, I used the formulas $F(f')=i\omega F$ and $F(xf)=iF'$. Will they be helpful in this case?

@nbubis: Your edit excised the latter of the two formulas Hala refers to, which is of course the one relevant to this particular problem.. –  anon Apr 28 '12 at 6:59
this is not a homework question,, i never asked for answers ... i just want to understand what is going on. –  Hala Shubair Apr 28 '12 at 9:03

Consider applying the formula $\widehat{(xf)}(\omega)=i\frac{d}{d\omega}\widehat{f}(\omega)$ twice...

Thankyou @anon .. I will try to do it –  Hala Shubair Apr 28 '12 at 9:06
• search the useful formula : $x^n f(x)$ here
• apply to $f(x)=e^{-x^2}$
