I have a laplace transform of F(P) = [1-exp(-p)]/[p(1+exp(-2p)] and it tells me to find the laplace transform of y(t) and it gives me a graph where:
y(0) = 0
y(1) = 1
y(2) = 1
y(3) = 0
y(4) = 0
y(5) = 1
y(6) = 1
and the pattern continues
I think this is come kind of heaviside step function but how do i find out the equation to it?
Here are two things (the first you should already have been taught):
Theorem: If f(t) is a periodic function of period T then .
In light of the above theorem, you need to find and then define f(t) as an appropriate periodic function.
Now you need to think hard about these two things and then make a strong attempt at the question before asking for more help.
My mistake. The above is not directly relevant to the question. I misread the denominator of the expression in post #1 as having a minus instead of a plus. If you re-arrange the form of the expression by multiplying numerator and denominator by then the ideas I have suggested will work I think.
