The problem statement, all variables and given/known data While t<1 , f(t) =0 While t>= 1, f(t) = t^2-2t+2 Find the LaPlace transform of the given function. The attempt at a solution The problem can be re-written as: u1(t)(t^2-2t+2) If it helps, this in turn can be re-written as: u1(t)((t-1)^2+1). I'm not sure it does help though. As for how to proceed from here, I'm in a fog. I know the LaPlace transform for something of the form uc(t) y(t-c), but have no idea what to do with this problem because of the raised power.
