Mathematics is widely used in every engineering fields. In this paper, several examples of applications of mathematics in mechanical, chemical, optimization and electrical engineering are discussed. Laplace transform mathematical tool is applied to solve problems. Applications here are the real ones found in the engineering fields, which may not be the same as discussed in many mathematics text books. The purpose of this paper is to relate mathematics to engineering field.


Keywords:  Laplace transform ; Mechanical; Mechanical; Electrical; Optimization.
