Homework Help: Inverse Laplace transform

  1. May 29, 2005 #1
    How can I find the inverse Laplace transform of the following function?

    [tex]Y(s) = \frac{1}{s^2 + \frac{1}{s}}[/tex]

    tandoorichicken, the best way I have learn to solve inverse Laplace transform is look up on the table (no one is expect to know all the transfroms) :biggrin:

    Yes, the most practical way to invert laplace transforms is to look them up in a table. If you are interested in a more direct way, you can use the general formula for the inverse laplace transform. But since all the important transforms are in a table, you rarely have to use this.
