Solve second order differential equation with Heaviside function using Laplace transform

The equation is: $$y'' + 3y = u_4(t)\cos(5(t-4)), \quad y(0) = 0, \quad y'(0) = -2$$ Here $u_4$ is the Heaviside function with activation switch at $t=4$. I can get all the way to the partial ...

How do I apply partial fraction expansion on $\dfrac{K}{(a+bz^{-1})(x+yz)}$?

I want to apply partial fraction expansion on $\dfrac{K}{(a+bz^{-1})(x+yz)}$. I'm not able to do it in the standard way, because one term has $z^{-1}$ term and the other has $z$. What is the approach ...

Laplace inverse of $\frac{e^{-s}(3s^2-s+2)}{(s-1)(s^2+1)}$

I thought maybe you could fist solve $\frac{(3s^2-s+2)}{(s-1)(s^2+1)}$ using partial fractions and later solve the $e^{-s}$ separately as it is a $d(t-1)$ (Dirac delta function). As you solve the ...

Help with a partial fraction decomposition

One of my homework problems last week was to find the inverse Laplace transform of the following: $$F(s)=\frac{2s+1}{s^2-2s+2}.$$ The answer is $f(t)= 2e^t \cos t + 3e^t \sin t$. Obviously once ...
