- Homework Statement
- A bullet of mass m is shot vertically up with initial speed v0. It is subject to air resistance that is quadratic in speed (constant of proportionality c2).

i. What is the maximum height reached?

ii. What initial speed u0, would be necessary to reach the same maximum height in the absence of air resistance?

Express your answers in terms of c2, g, m, and v0.

- Relevant Equations
- For part i: m(dv/dt) = -c2(v^2) - mg

I have an attempted solution to part i here. I'm primarily having trouble with part ii since I don't see how the x found in part i can be attained if there's no air resistance term.
