We're supposed to find the object's KE and heat. Given:
Forces on Object: Air Drag + Gravity
Air Drag = .5(coefficient of drag)(1.2 kg/m3)v2A
A = cross sectional area
R = Radius of object
Object is X Km above the ground
Initial velocity = V
We are told it should be an initial value problem.
Possibly y"+ (Force due to Drag)y' + (gravity)y = 0
The Attempt at a Solution
I tried plugging in the initial conditions to the equation above, but I'm stuck at that point.
