I mean, describe what's going on. What beam, what forces, ...?

It is a cantilever beam with end load.

OK, and what facts are you given - lengths, masses, moduli..? In the OP you mention ODE and quote an expression involving time, so I guess this is not a statics question. Is there some perturbation applied?

A steel cantilever beam is ##120## in long by ##1\times 1## in##^2## which has a motor that weighs ##100## lb##_f## mounted at the end. The motor runs at 183.26 rad/sec. The motor has an unbalance of ##0.1## lb##_m## located at a radius of ##0.1## in from the axis of the shaft. Assume that for the steel ##E = 30\times 10^6## psi, the density is ##0.28## lb##_m##/in##^3##, and that the damping ratio is ##0.01##.

What I did was then:
First, let's convert Young modulus from psi to Pascals, 1 psi is ##6894.76## Pascals. Then ##E = 2.07\times 10^{11}## pascals. The moment of inertia is ##I = \frac{bh^3}{12} = 3.47\times 10^{-8}## m since 1 in is ##0.0254## m. The equivalent spring constant is
$$
k_{eq} = \frac{3EI}{\ell^3} = 760.985\text{ N/m}.
$$
The relation of mass with density is ##\rho = \frac{m}{V}##. The volume of the cantilever beam is ##V = 1^2(120) = 120## in##^3##. Then ##m = V\rho = \frac{120(0.28)}{2.2} = 15.273## kg. The equivalent mass
$$
m_{eq} = 15.273 + \frac{100}{2.2}0.23 = 25.7275\text{ kg}.
$$
Then the natural frequency of the beam and the motor system is
$$
\omega_n = \sqrt{\frac{k_{eq}}{m_{eq}}} = 5.4386\text{ rad/sec}.
$$
Then I used a Laplace transform to determine ##y(t)##

OK, well there's a lot there I could not have guessed at.
Plugging all these numbers in straight away makes it unnecessarily hard to follow.
##I = \frac{bh^3}{12} ##
what is b?
##m_{eq} = 15.273 + \frac{100}{2.2}0.23 = 25.7275\text{ kg}.##
Where does the 0.23 come from?
Then I used a Laplace transform to determine y(t)
And that is the time-dependent expression in the OP, right?
I assume you want the max stress at the beam support. In terms of the oscillation cycle, when will that occur?

b = 1in or 0.0254 m 0.23 is by definition of equivalent mass of a cantilever beam.

I don't know. I am trying to determine the force transmitter to the base.
