Homework Help: Control systems -- input with non-zero initial conditions

  1. Jan 14, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Deriving an s-domain equation for the following inputs a) &b)

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I understand how to derive the equation for an input with zero initial conditions (part a) but I'm not sure what to do when there are non-zero initial conditions (part b)

    Which Laplace transformation rules do you think may be relevant here? Specifically, is there any way you can retrieve the system function from R in a)? And in b), perhaps you can express the input as a sum of something?
