Partial fraction expansion

  1. Jan 19, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I'm taking the Laplace transform of F(s), and the first thing is to expand it by partial fraction or something so that I can match F(s) with a table of laplace transforms.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Does partial fraction even work? I've got two variables s and w so I doubt it. How do I do this? Just brute force trying to factor it out or something?

    Your fractions should be for the form A/s + B/s^2 + [Cs+D]/(s^2+w^2)
