- Homework Statement
- On a boat going 4m/s the engine stops working. How far does the boat go in the next 10s if the equation for acceleration is a=-k*(v)^2 and k=0.65m^-1? What is the speed of the boat at 10s?

- Relevant Equations
- v=4m/s

a=-k*(v)^2

k=0.65m^-1

I know that you can find the distance traveled by integrating v(t), but I can't find a way to convert a(v) into it. I tried derivating and integrating the a(v) equation, but I don't know what the results mean.
