## Homework Statement:

- How do I deal with non-smooth forcing functions if I want to solve the Laplace transform of an ode.

## Relevant Equations:

- See below

Suppose I'm solving

$$y''(t) = x''(t)$$ where $$x(t)$$ is the ramp function. Then, by taking the Laplace transform of both sides, I need to know $x'(0)$ which is discontinuous. What is the appropriate technique to use here?
