Homework Statement



Find the solution for

L[y]=H(t-pi/2)sint=q(t)
y(0)=0

by using the Green's function.

Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution



My problem is that I'm stuck with how to get the Heaviside into the required general solution. Is it anything to do with the fact that the Heaviside function is the integral of the Delta Dirac function? Help. I'm really stuck!
