##### Solution Summary

First we have to find the Laplace transform of the input function. It is a periodic function with T=20. Then it is enough to find the laplace transform of its main harmonic and call it F(s) and the laplace transform of the input will become: F(s)/(1-exp(-20s)). Using the final value theorem we get: ess= lim sE(s).
