You don't need to, if you make the substitution this transforms the DE into

which is second order linear constant coefficient nonhomogeneous.

Homogeneous solution:

The characteristic equation is

.

So the homogeneous solution is .

Nonhomogeneous solution:

Assume a solution of the form .

Then and .

Substituting into the DE gives

and

and .

So the nonhomogeneous solution is .

The general solution is the sum of the homogeneous and nonhomogeneous solutions.

So .

From this we know .

From the initial conditions:

and

and

and

.

So .

Therefore

.

From the final initial condition

.

So finally our final solution is

We do not give solutions here.

Your first step is taking the laplace of both sides.

Do it and tell us if you stuck. - December 26th 2010, 07:25 AMkjchauhan

Good.

Now, simplify your fraction. - December 26th 2010, 08:30 AMkjchauhan

Note

You will use partial fraction expansion.

But it will be too long x_x
