Homework Help: An integral question

  1. Nov 23, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I'm doing a dynamics question and I'm stuck with an integral.
    dv
    ------------------------
    14-0.0003v2

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know how to do it without the 14 term, but not this way. In fact, don't really have any ideas either. I mean, if the bottom could be expressed as a square of a difference, that would make it easier, but in this way, I don't know.

    Thanks for any help

    Hi Melawrghk! :smile:

    Do you mean ∫dv/(14-0.0003v2) ?

    Hint: partial fractions. :wink:
