Homework Help: Finding impulse response

  1. Dec 7, 2005 #1
    can someone show me how to find the impulse response h(t)?

    questions: Determine the impulse response h(t) for the system characterized by the differential equation
    y(2)(t) + 2 y(1)(t) + 17 y(t) = x(2)(t) + 5 x(1)(t) + 18 x(t)

    thanks

    How about taking the Laplace transform, solving for y/x, and then transforming back?
