Laplace transform with Heaviside function

  1. Jun 18, 2014 #1

    I am searching for the Laplace transform of this function

    [tex]u_a(y)\frac{\partial c(t)}{\partial t}[/tex]

    where [tex]u_a(y)[/tex] is the Heaviside step function (a>0).

    Can anyone help me?

    Thanks in advance! Paolo

    Laplace transform with respect to which variable?

    With respect to c(t).

    Actually, I realized that there is an error in the equation. The correct equation is as follows:

    [tex]u_a(t)\frac{\partial{c(t)}}{\partial t}[/tex]

    i.e. u_a is a function of t and NOT y.

    Sorry for the mistake!
