Homework Help: Inverse LaPlace Transform

  1. Nov 22, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Determine the inverse Laplace transform of the given function

    F(s) = (2s+1) / (s^2 + 16 )

    2. Relevant equations

    the LaPlace transform of different functions

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I divide the above equation into 2 fractions one with the 2s in the numerator and the other fraction with the 1 in the numerator. I know what the inverse Laplace transform of the 2s is but not what the (1) / (s^2+16).

    The inverse Laplace transform of 1/(s^2 + a^2) is (1/a)sin(at).
