1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data the effect of air resistance is to slow down a moving object. It can be shown that height of a falling object is given by the following 2. Relevant equations y=y0-[t+(e^-bt - 1)/b]g/b a. show that for short times this reduces to the expected expression y=y0-1/2gt^2 b. Find the velocity c. Find the acceleration 3. The attempt at a solution I really not sure where to start with part a. what does it mean by reduces?
