I know this may be seen as a physics question and it is, but i am just looking for an explicit solution to falling bodies with air resistance.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

OK many of you are probably familiar with the equation for a body falling with air resistance.

mdv/dt=mg-kv^2

I am not sure exactly how to solve for v in terms of t, It seems to be seperable but i have problems with the integration.

mdv=(mg-kv^2)dt

If an explicit solution is indeed possible then i would like to know because I am unsure of my results on this one. Thanks!
