Hi dean,need help with evaluating H(t-8t)2cosh(t-8)

What do you want to evaluate exactly?

Did you try substituting t=0?

Do you know what the function H is?

Btw, is there perchance a typo? Can it be that the first factor should be H(t-8) instead?

Hi Dean, this is Hayden, I'm assuming that you want to do a Laplace Transform of this. In future please post the ENTIRE question.need help with evaluating H(t-8t)2cosh(t-8)

I also expect it was $\displaystyle \mathcal{L}\left\{ H \left( t - 8 \right) \cdot 2\cosh{ \left( t - 8 \right) } \right\} $.

Use the second shift theorem.

$\displaystyle \begin{align*} \mathcal{L}\left\{ H\left( t - 8 \right) \cdot 2\cosh{ \left( t - 8 \right) } \right\} &= 2\,\mathrm{e}^{-2\,s} \,\mathcal{L} \left\{ \cosh{ \left( t \right) } \right\} \\ &= 2\,\mathrm{e}^{-2\,s}\left( \frac{s}{s^2 - 1} \right) \end{align*}$
