if the cart is displaced from rest by distance X_0 and released at t=0 with initial velocity v_0=1.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Ok this might be a stupid question because I wasn't able to find a similar question like this anywhere, this question just pops into my mind when I was solving for transfer functions on a system with a force input. I think I am still a little confused on the definitions. So I found it's equation of motion in time and Laplace domain, but if I were asked to find the transfer function of the plant, does it exists? since G(s)= output/ input, as far as I see here, there is no input since it was released at t=0, if it has an input, I can just take the X(s)/ input(s). Can someone please confirm my understanding?
