would it be possible to explain that ?

the characteristic equation ?

ragmanBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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

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

i knew i was forgetting something

UnkleRhaukusBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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

UnkleRhaukusBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
its just a positive constant, if you want to set \[\omega_n^2=A,\qquad A>0\]

ragmanBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok im sorta getting it so what would the laplace transform of this constant be
 one year ago

UnkleRhaukusBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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 \[\mathcal L\{1\}(s)=\frac 1s\]
