i thought about all sorts of diff eq solving techniques

but nothing comes up to my mind

dv/(g-(k/m)*v^2)=dt

but it doesnt really help ...

I think it's quite correct, but there could be some errors in calculation..anyway:

[tex]g- \frac{k}{m}v^2[/tex]

, being a "difference of squares", factors as

[tex](\sqrt{g}- \sqrt{k/m}v)(\sqrt{g}+ \sqrt{k/m}v)[/tex]

and so that function can be integrated by "partial fractions".
