    would it be possible to explain that ?

    so the first thing you would do is use the laplace transform on everything right im just not sure how to figure out how to do it for the w shaped variable

    omega ? \(\omega_n^2\) is a constant for constant n

    im not sure how you are going to use Laplace if you dont have any initial values

    well if we are going to use laplace transform you can forget the characteristic equation

    ok sounds good the only difficulty i face is when things like omega come up i just get confused as to how im supposed to find the laplace transform of it

    its just a positive constant, if you want to set \[\omega_n^2=A,\qquad A>0\]

    ok im sorta getting it so what would the laplace transform of this constant be

    the laplace transform of a constant times a function is the constant times the transfer \[\mathcal L\{αf(t)\} = α\mathcal L\{f(t)\}\] the laplace transform of one is one on the the transfer parameter \[\mathcal L\{1\}(s)=\frac 1s\]
