Differential equations and Laplace transforms are an integral part of control problems in engineering systems. However a clear explanation of the relationship of Laplace transforms with the differential equation formalism is difficult to find for coupled differential equations. Here we describe an example where this relationship is understood by breaking up the system of differential equations into simpler cause-effect blocks and by relating the blocks to the the corresponding Laplace transforms.
