Homework Statement


Drag=m(Mu*g+(V^2)/L)
L=constant with unit of length
initialV=V_0
how far the car will coast under this condition with initial V
how long does it take to stop

Homework Equations


a=V*dv/dt


The Attempt at a Solution


there are linear and non-linear parts in this drag
I tried to solve them separately but I can only find v'=e^-(V_0*x*L)
