a=(D*V^2*B*A)/(2*M)

D=air density

V=velocity

B=ballistic coefficient

A=cross sectional area

M=mass

Thanks for your time

[tex]\frac{dv}{dt}= \frac{DBA}{2M}v^2[/tex]

That seperates as

[tex]\frac{dv}{v^2}= \frac{DBA}{2M}dt[/tex]

which can be integrated to

[tex]-\frac{1}{v}= \frac{DBA}{2M}t+ C[/tex]

where C is a constant of integration.
