# Inverse laplace of 1s

 P: 21 This is very tricky for me. How to find the inverse laplace of 1s. I haven't been taught the integral method of inverse. Only the formula based , splitting terms kind of thing. I used matlab and found it was dirac delta. But how do I get to it without using the integral for inverse?
 P: 38 When I look at this in Mathematica I get a derivative of the delta function, in other words: $$\mathcal{L}^{-1}\left\{s\right\} = \frac{d}{dt}\delta(t)$$

Hey yeah, figured that out. It's actually by this property:

inverse( df/dt)= s F(s) where laplace(f) = F(s)

laplace ( dirac delta )=1 ( known property )

laplace( d(diracdelta)/dt ) = s*(1)

hence, inverse( s) = d(diracdelta)/dt

yeah yeah. That's what I meant. Typo.
