I am trying to understand the basics of easy inverse laplace transformations. On the first line is the "correct" answer. On the second line what i expected.


Exactly the same scenario here:


So it seems to me as if i am missing something. Could someone explain me why my expected solution is incorrect?


Using $\mathcal{L}_{t}\left[e^{at}\sin(\omega t)\right]_{(s)}=\frac{\omega}{(s-a)^2+\omega^2}$:


Using $\mathcal{L}_{t}\left[e^{at}\cos(\omega t)\right]_{(s)}=\frac{s-a}{(s-a)^2+\omega^2}$:

$$\mathcal{L}_{s}^{-1}\left[\frac{s-7}{s^2-14s+73}\right]_{(t)}=\mathcal{L}_{s}^{-1}\left[\frac{s-7}{(s-7)^2+24}\right]_{(t)}=\mathcal{L}_{s}^{-1}\left[\frac{s-7}{(s-7)^2+\sqrt{24}}\right]_{(t)}=$$ $$\mathcal{L}_{s}^{-1}\left[\frac{s-7}{(s-7)^2+\left(2\sqrt{6}\right)^2}\right]_{(t)}=e^{7t}\cos\left(2\sqrt{6}t\right)$$

  • $\begingroup$ how can this formula explain the example with " s-7" $\endgroup$ – privetDruzia Nov 22 '15 at 12:35
  • $\begingroup$ @privetDruzia I'll edit my answer with your second problem! $\endgroup$ – Jan Nov 22 '15 at 12:38
  • $\begingroup$ thx for the update but, The expected answer for the second problem is e^(7t) cos(5t). No roots $\endgroup$ – privetDruzia Nov 22 '15 at 13:30
