Homework Help: Simple Fourier Transform

  1. Jan 25, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Determine the Fourier transform of the following:

    u(t) - u(t-T)

    where u(t) is a unit step function.

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know that the Fourier transform of u(t) is pi*delta(w) + 1/jw

    but when u(t-T) comes into the picture, the time shift would be e-jwT

    But is w inside the formula gonna be changed too accordingly?

    I am so confused............

    I believe this is really simple problem if i could get a little bit of help....

    Please someone help me out here..
