Example Question #1 : Transforms Of Periodic Functions
Find the Laplace transform of the periodic function.
This particular piecewise function is called a square wave. The period of this function is the length at which it takes the function to return to its starting point.
For this particular function
it has a period of
Using the Transform of a Periodic Function Theorem which states,
the problem can be solved as follows.
