Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm calculating the velocity of something that's stretching, and as it gets longer, the velocity decreases.

So to calculate the velocity at time (t):

v(t) = A / (B L(t))

A change in the distance over a small time dt will be given by:

dL=v(t) dt

So I guess the distance is:

L= integral from 0 to t of v(t) dt ?

How can I go about solving such an equation? Are itterative methods required? Can anyone give me some keywords to help my search on google? I don't really know where to start.

Thanks a lot for your time.
