    Equation of motion with linear acceleration and velocity-squared drag

    Holy cow, Filip! Thanks for providing all this information! I can't even begin to explain how much I appreciate this. The best I had done so far was to find http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/airplane/flteqs.html" [Broken] which gives some equations for drag-impeded flight. I ended up using the...

    Equation of motion with linear acceleration and velocity-squared drag

    Hi, Filip. Thanks for the reply. In this particular case, I am attempting to model a crafts horizontal velocity over the surface of a planet (with atmosphere) as it is on a landing approach. I would like to be able to determine the exact (or close enough) time the craft will have to fire its...

    Equation of motion with linear acceleration and velocity-squared drag

    Homework Statement This isn't exactly homework, but this seemed like the right place for this question. I'm working on an add-on for Orbiter - the space flight simulator - and would like to be able to determine the equation of motion for an object travelling at an initial velocity (v0), with a...
