An object having mass 70kg falls from rest under the influence of gravity. The terminal velocity of the object is -20 m/s. Assume that air resistance is proportional to velocity.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Q) Find the velocity and distance traveled at the end of 2 seconds.

I got an answer for the velocity, but I am having trouble with the part about distance travelled. I know I just integrate the equation I had for velocity, but I do not know how to solve for the constant that appears after integrating. Thanks!
