Homework Help: Inverse laplace of a quadratic?

  1. Jan 28, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I tried splitting up the bottom into the form (s-1)^2+4, but I can't get the top to factor correctly to make that work. I'm not sure where to go from here, since I can't do partial fractions with the top and bottom being the same order. can anyone help me out?

    Here's an advice an engineer gave me, lend the book by schaum called lapalce transforms, it's great for what you need, get my drift. (-:
