Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So m*dv/dt = mg - kv^2, where m is skydiver mass, g acceleration due to gravity, and k> 0 related to amount of air resistance. So I want to find the analytical solution for v(t), with the assumption that v(0) = 0.

I went all the way to integrating it with a partial fraction, but then got an answer drastically different from what the book got.

Thanks...
