If my Force = (-gamma)(dx/dt)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

velocity v = dx/dt

Mass m

(m)(dv/dt) = F = (-gamma)(dx/dt)

Now I want to integrate it over kT<= t <= (k+1)T

Rearranging gives me (dv/v) = (-gamma/m)dt

The right side integrates to (-gamma/m)(T), but how do I integrate the left side over kT<= t <= (k+1)T??

Thanks
