    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The acceleration of a body is defined as a=-K*u^2 , K is const. When t=o sec V=Vo.
    Find : a) V(t) b) X(t) c) V(x) .

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    ok! I actually solved the exercise.
    Here it goes!

    a=du/dt => a/du=1/dt => du/a=dt => using integrals S 1/a du = S dt . You solve the integral and its over. Pretty easy but i got stuck with it :P
