1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The differential equation that models the volume of a raindrop is $$\frac{dy}{dt} = kv^{2/3}$$ where $$k = 3^{2/3}(4 \pi)^{1/3}$$

A) Why doesn't this equation satisfy the hypothesis of the Uniqueness Theroem?
B) Give a physical interpertation of the fact that solution to this equation with the initial condition v(0) = 0 are not unique. Does this model say anything about the way raindrops begin to form?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

A) The equation doesn't satisfy the hypothesis Uniqueness Theroem because when v = 0, the equation's derivative does not exist.

B) At time t = 0, the raindrop does not have volume, but as t increases, it's volume increases as well.

Am I correct for both parts
