Homework Statement



The sine wave [tex] sin(t) [/tex] will only drive the harmonic oscillator [tex] y'' + \omega ^2 y [/tex] into resonance when [tex] \omega = 1 [/tex]. For what values of [tex] \omega [/tex] will the half- and full-wave rectified sine waves drive the harmonic oscillator into resonance.

Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution



Starting with the half-wave rectified sine wave;

Taking the Laplace transform of both sides and rearranging for Y(s);

[tex] Y(s)= \frac{1+e^{-s\pi}}{(s^2+1)(1-e^{-s2\pi})(s^2+ \omega ^2)} + \frac{sy(0)+y'(0)}{s^2+\omega^2}[/tex]


From here I think I need to find the poles of Y(s) but I am unsure what to do with the [tex] (1-e^{-s2\pi}) [/tex] in the denominator of the first term. Similar problem when looking at the full-wave rectified sine curve.

Ok, first of all, this is the math part of the forum, so if you want help solving an ODE, you'll have to actually tell us what it is -- we won't necessarily know what you mean simply by giving a physical description.
