A Particle in freefall with drag effects
Assuming Stokes drag, wikipedia suggests this problem (the solution for v(t) ) has an analytical solution. Is this right?
Could someone point me to the derivation online? Or a reference for it? Do we all agree that it's right?

if you are talking about that v(t)=k(1-exp(-bt/m) then yes even you can derive it by using
m(dv/dt)=mg-vpg-bv, p= density of medium,integrating it this will give you that
