## Homework Statement

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/m

^{3})v

^{2}A

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.

## Homework Equations

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.
