Homework Help: Laplace Transform (Linear Algebra)

  1. Apr 23, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Evaluate the laplace transform of {t2e7tsinh(3t)}

    2. Relevant equations
    Laplace transform of {tnf(t)}=(-1)ndn/ds2 * F(s)

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I've replaced it with (-1)2d2L{e7tsinh(3t)}

    I'm not sure how to proceed, though, as I don't really see how to take the laplace without somehow splitting up these functions. Do I use a unit step function? How would I use it if so? I'm not really sure what to do here

    Thanks for any help.

    The Laplace transform of a function that has been multiplied by an exponential function can be found using the shift theorem for the s-axis. Do you know this theorem?

    Is this the theorem you were referring to?

    You can write ##\sinh(3t) = \frac{1}{2} \left( e^{3t} - e^{-3t}\right),## and proceed accordingly.
