I am trying to model the flight of a bullet when taking into account air resistance and I am using this equation to get the drag force of the bullet at certain velocities:

D = [itex]\frac{ρ*V^2*Cd*A}{2m}[/itex]

Where:

D is the drag force in Newtons

ρ is the density of air (1.225 kg/m

^{3})

V is the velocity of the bullet

Cd is the drag coefficient of the bullet (For this let's just assume it's 0.12)

A is the cross sectional area of the bullet (Also for this let's say it's 0.05m

^{2})

m is the mass of the bullet (And let's assume this is 0.150kg)

How would I use the value of the drag force of the bullet to model the flight path over time?

In my head I'm sure it's something simple which I have studied before but I just can't think what it might be

Thank you in advance :)
