Starting with the class with doing AP 12.2c

Looking for the laplace of :

t cos(wt)

This looks alot like

tf(t)

which is in the table and can then be converted fairly easily, so doing this you would do:

-dF(s)/ds

Substituting our equation in we get

-d(s/s

^{2}+ w

^{2})/ds

Now we would have to take the derivative and then we'll get the same answer as in the book.

Next we worked on problem 12.17a

the integral of e

^{-ax}dx

This looks strikingly similar to

F(s)/s

so substituting it in for it we get

(1/s+a)/s

and finally

1/s(s+a)

In this case x and t are interchangeable since they are describing the same thing (a variable), which is why we could use the form from the table.Followed by Problem 12.23a

Figure out the Laplace of:

f(t) = d/dt (e

^{-at}sin(wt))

looking at that equation we can say that everything in the parantheses would be the equivalent to f(t)

Using that we can use:

df(t)/dt = sF(s) - f(0)

Then we can convert it to

sw/((s+a

^{2}) + w

^{2})

Next we attempted

F(s) = 40/(s

^{2}+ 1.2s +1)

To do this problem we want to do completing the square, so we would end up with :

40/((s+.6)

^{2}+ .8

^{2})

we can get w in the top to match the form

w/(s+a)

^{2}+ w

^{2}

so we just do 40/.8 which gives us 50 so we can put the equation in the correct form looking like this:

50 * (.8/((s+.6)

^{2}+ w

^{2}))

now converting back into the time domain

50e

^{-.6t}sin(.8t)

Continuing

A circuit with a voltage source (160v), a resistor(4.8), an inductor (4H) and, a capacitor(.25F) all in series, to be solved for.

*Remembering that V = IR

I(s) = (160/s)/(4.8+4s + 4/s)

moving s down to the denominator and pulling a 4 out we get the equation as such:

I(s) = 40/(s

^{2}+1.2s+1)

Since we have already done this equation just a few moments ago we can consider ourselves done.Next we look at the equation

F(s) = 10(s+6)/(s+1)(s+3)

Using Partial Fraction Decomposition we are able to get

K

_{1}= 25

K

_{2}= -15

From there we sub them back in and get

25/(s+1) - 15/(s+3)

Using the Table to convert from Laplace to time domain we get:

(25e

^{-t}- 15e

^{-3t})u(t)

We add u(t) on there to force this equation to only be valid in the Positive time domain, this works because u(t) = 0 for all time less then 0 and u(t) = 1 for all time greater then 0.Problem 13.9 on page 550

Breakdown of how we'll solve this circuit:

- Get the Initial values for the circuit using t<0,>
- Calculate the rest of the circuit using the initial values, again draw the circuit.
- We are looking for the voltage across the capacitor so we can use the voltage division.
- Use Partial fraction decomposition to finish the circuit off and solve the formula

to find V we use the equation

(8*10

^{5}*12mV/s)/2*10

^{3}+.8s+(8*10

^{5}/s)

That eventually ends up in the form:

12000/(s

^{2}+ 2500s + 10

^{6})

We continue and use partial fraction decomposition and leave 12000 in and we get 8 and -8 for our k's

following that through we can use the equation

-((1/8)/(s+500) - (1/8)/(s+2000))

which again looks alot like a Laplace form answer

k/s+a

convert it back and you're golden!
