    The Laplace Transform of a Derivative

    show that \mathcal{L} \left \{ \frac d{dt} f(t) \right \} = sF(s) - f(0)

    how???

    By definition: F(s) = \mathcal{L} \{ f(t) \} = \int_0^\infty e^{-st} f(t)~dt

    Thus, \mathcal {L} \{ f'(t) \} = \int_0^\infty e^{-st} f'(t)~dt

    Now proceed using integration by parts with u = e^{-st} and dv = f'(t)~dt
