Laplace transform of convolution with derivative in it

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    I am wondering how to Laplace transform this expression

    [tex]f(t)=\int^{\tau}_{0} g(\tau)f'(t-\tau)d\tau[/tex]
    or more precisely
    [tex]f(t)=\int^{\tau}_{0} sin(8\tau)f'(t-\tau)d\tau[/tex]

    The [tex]f'(t-\tau)[/tex] gets me confused.

    2. Relevant equations

    [tex]\int^{\tau}_{0} f(t-\tau)g(\tau)d\tau[/tex]
    and the laplace transform of that is:

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have no idea how to proceed.
