    Inverse Laplace Transform

    I need help finding the inverse laplace transform of

    \frac {8s^2-4s+12}{s(s^2+4)}<br />

    and

    \frac {1-2s}{s^2+4s+5}

    Thank You

    By partial fractions, we can write this as:

    \frac 3s + \frac {5s - 4}{s^2 + 4}

    or, in other words:

    3 \cdot {\color{red} \frac 1s} + 5 \cdot {\color{red} \frac s{s^2 + 2^2}} - 2 \cdot { \color{red}\frac 2{s^2 + 2^2}}

    now just look up the rules in the table of your text. what are the inverse Laplace transforms for the guys in red?

    and

    \frac {1-2s}{s^2+4s+5}

    Thank You
    with some algebraic manipulation (completing the square of the denominator, factoring out a minus 1 from the numerator and writing -1 as 4 - 5) we find that this expression is:

    -2 \cdot {\color{red}\frac {s + 2}{(s + 2)^2 + 1}} + 5 \cdot {\color{red} \frac 1{(s + 2)^2 + 1}}

    now this is the same story as the last one. look up the transforms in the table in your text

    You can write, \tfrac{3}{s} +  \tfrac{5s}{s^2+4} - 2\cdot \tfrac{2}{s^2+4}.
    Now just recognize the forms, 3+5\cos (2x) - 2 \sin (2x).

    by partial fractions (work not shown) we get

    \frac{8s^2-4s+12}{s(s^2+4)}=\frac{3}{s}+\frac{5s-4}{(s^2+4)}=3\frac{1}{s}+5\frac{s}{s^2+4}+2\frac{2  }{s^2+4}

    now taking the inverse transform we get

    \mathcal{L}^{-1}\{ 3\frac{1}{s}+5\frac{s}{s^2+4}+2\frac{2}{s^2+4}\}=

    by the linearity property we get

    3\mathcal{L}^{-1}\{ \frac{1}{s}\} +5\mathcal{L}^{-1}\{ \frac{s}{s^2+4}\}+2\mathcal{L}^{-1}\{ \frac{2}{s^2+4}\} =3+5\cos(2t)+2\sin(2t)

    Edit: late again

    Hi! I'll be omitting \theta(t), the Heaviside step function, in this post.

    Assuming you know how to do partial fraction expansion we have:

    <br />
\frac{8s^2-4s+12}{s(s^2+4)}<br />
= 3\frac1s + \frac{5s-4}{s^2-2^2}<br />
= \frac3s + 5\frac{s}{s^2-2^2} - 2\frac2{s^2-2^2}<br />

    and knowing these transformation pairs:

    \mathcal{L}^{-1}\left\{\frac1s\right\}=1
    \mathcal{L}^{-1}\left\{\frac{\omega}{s^2+\omega^2}\right\}=\sin(  \omega t)
    \mathcal{L}^{-1}\left\{\frac{s}{s^2+\omega^2}\right\}=\cos(\omeg  a t)

    we have

    \mathcal{L}^{-1}\left\{3\frac1s + 5\frac{s}{s^2-2^2} - 2\frac2{s^2-2^2}\right\}<br />
= 3\mathcal{L}^{-1}\left\{\frac1s\right\}<br />
+5\mathcal{L}^{-1}\left\{\frac{s}{s^2-2^2}\right\}<br />
-2\mathcal{L}^{-1}\left\{\frac2{s^2-2^2}\right\}<br />
=3+5\cos(2t)-2\sin(2t)

    Edit: Wow, some guys are too fast for me!
