Homework Help: Inverse laplace problem

  1. Nov 26, 2005 #1
    i have the following problem
    I am suppose to find the inverse laplace by putting in a form that i can find in a Laplace table, unfortunately the denominator does not factor!!... not sure how to procede.

    Try completing the square. s2+ 2s+ 5= s2+ 2s+ 1+ 4= (s+1)2+ 4. Do you have a entry in your table that involves s2+ a2 in the denominator?
    Can you write 2s+ 2 as 2(s+1)+ b?

    Does your table of inverse Laplace transforms have a suggestion if you have (s+ a) instead of s?
