(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

the forces will be like this

[tex]m⋅dv/dt=-m⋅g-k⋅v[/tex]

I need to find the velocity equation and the place equation, thereby meaning the integral of the velocity equation. for the condition t,v=0,v_0

3. The attempt at a solution

i have found this

[tex]v(t)=mg/k*(-1+e^(-k/m⋅t))+v_0⋅e^(-k/m⋅t)[/tex] or in picture form http://imgur.com/WjksG

But I am not sure it's correct
