41. Identifying f(t) = t
n
we have f

(t) = nt
n1
, n = 1, 2, 3, . . . . Then, since f(0) = 0,
n {t
n1
} = {nt
n1
} = s {t
n
} and {t
n
} =
n
s
{t
n1
}.
For n = 1, {t} =

s
{1} =

s

.
For n = 2, {t

{t} =

For n = 3, {t

42. Let F(t) = t
1/3
. Then F(t) is of exponential order, but f(t) = F

(t) =

3
t

is unbounded near t = 0 and
hence is not of exponential order.

Exercises 4.1
Let f(t) = 2te
t
2
cos e
t
2
=
d
dt
sine
t
2
. This function is not of exponential order, but we can show that its Laplace
transform exists. Using integration by parts we have
{2te
t
2
cos e
t
2
} =
_

0
e

sine
t

dt = s {sine

}.
Since sine
t
2
is continuous and of exponential order, {sine
t
2
} exists, and therefore {2te
t
2
cos e
t
2
} exists.
43. The relation will be valid when s is greater than the maximum of c
1
and c
2
.
44. Since e
t
is an increasing function and t
2
> lnM +ct for M > 0 we have e
t
2
> e
ln M+ct
= Me
ct
for t suciently
large and for any c. Thus, e
t
2
is not of exponential order.
45. By part (c) of Theorem 4.1
{e
(a+ib)t
} =
1
s (a +ib)
=
1
(s a) ib
(s a) +ib
(s a) +ib
=
s a +ib
(s a)
2
+b
2
.
By Eulers formula, e
i
= cos +i sin, so
{e
(a+ib)t
} = {e
at
e
ibt
} {e
at
(cos bt +i sinbt)}
= {e
at
cos bt} +i {e
at
sinbt}
=
s a
(s a)
2
+b
2
+i
b
(s a)
2
+b
2
.
Equating real and imaginary parts we get
{e
at
cos bt} =
s a
(s a)
2
+b
2
and {e
at
sinbt} =
b
(s a)
2
+b
2
.
46. We want f(x +y) = f(x) +f(y) or
m(x +y) +b = (mx +b) +(my +b) = m(x +y) + ( +)b
for all real numbers and . Taking = = 1 we see that b = 2b, so b = 0. Thus, f(x) = mx + b will be a
linear transformation when b = 0.

To nd c we let y(1) = 2. Then 2 = ce

To nd c we let y

() = 0. Then 0 = y

() = ce

and c = 0. Thus, y(t) = 0. (Since the dierential equation
is homogeneous and both boundary conditions are 0, we can see immediately that y(t) = 0 is a solution. We
have shown that it is the only solution.)
33. Recall from Chapter 3 that mx

Also, since

The motion of the pendulums is not periodic since cos 2t/

(t) =

(t) we see that
1

(so that the double pendulum
is straight out) when t is about 0.75 seconds.
(f ) To make a movie of the pendulum it is necessary to locate the mass in the plane as a function of time.
Suppose that the upper arm is attached to the origin and that the equilibrium position lies along the
negative y-axis. Then mass m
1
is at (x, (t), y
1
(t)) and mass m
2
is at (x

x

A reasonable movie can be constructed by letting t range from 0 to 10 in increments of 0.1 seconds.
