i have wandered past my math background into drag equations on bullets. i found the equation that relates acceleration and speed of the bullet. I do not know how to integrate multi-varible equations. How to i get the equation so it can be graphed on an acceleration vs time? I am thinking from there i can integrate again to velocity vs time then again to displacement vs time. I am not really interested in learning how to do this right now, since i will learn it in class later, i just need the answer to complete my program. The equation i have is(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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
