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

A mass m has speed v_{0}at the origin and coasts along the x axis in a medium with force F(v). Use the chain rule of differentiation to write the equation of motion in the separated form m*v*dv/F(v)=dx.

2. Relevant equations

F(v)= -c(v^3/2)

3. The attempt at a solution

So far, i drew a diagram to show what was happening. I know that F(v) is the drag force. I'm really just confused about what the equation of motion is. I know that it is going to have a velocity and mass, I think.

Can any one help?
