hello,

I need to apply Laplace transform on this signal

and i'm just stuck with this one :D so can anybody please help me with this :D

any help will be most appreciated :D:D:D

Well, the LT is linear, correct? So you should be able to move the Laplace Transform operator inside the sum. What's the LT of the Dirac Delta function you have in there?

Technically, you'd have

where is the Heaviside step function.

Now what? - November 9th 2010, 07:43 AMmaliZeleni

No, no. You're done with the LT. You should plug these results back into your original equation. What do you get?

What is T? Is is positive? If so, you can lose the Heaviside step function (it'll just be 1 everywhere). What do you have on the LHS of this equation? Finally, assuming you can ignore the step function, you can rewrite the sum this way:

Does that suggest anything to you?

It's true that the*sequence*probably converges to zero. But that doesn't mean the*series*

converges to zero. - November 9th 2010, 08:05 AMmaliZeleni

Well, you should probably have a lower-case s in there, but yes. However, you also need to do the LT of the LHS of the original equation in the OP. That's so hard it's easy:

Make sense? - November 9th 2010, 08:27 AMmaliZeleni

Oh, sorry. I didn't know. Your English is better than some native speakers I've seen.

LHS = Left Hand Side

RHS = Right Hand Side

LT = Laplace Transform

Cheers.
