    laplace help

    hey guys,

    not too sure if this is the right area, but i have 2 maths problems that i am struggling with. Does anyone know how to do these two laplace questions?

    i have already tried once and failed and i only get one more attempt on the online test

    Find laplace of

    d^2y/dt^t-13dy/dt+42y=6e^(-4t)
    y(0)=0
    y'(0)=3

    and find the solution of the integral using laplace

    f(t)=5+3t^2+2{f(u)sin(2(t-u))

    the { is meant to be the integral sign

    Thanks

    Apply laplace transform on both sides.

    You can find the LT of the first DE using the standard tables and theorems. The initial conditions get included when you take the LT of derivatives. As for the second equation, the integral there is a convolution, which transforms in a particularly nice fashion. I think you meant to say, "Find the solution of the integral equation using Laplace...", right?

    So, what do you get when you apply these techniques?

    Hmm. You didn't mention before that this problem was on an online test. It's forum policy not knowingly to help with problems that count towards a grade.
