Our equation of motion along x is

dv

_{x}/dt = -g(v

_{x}/v

_{t})

Integrating this, we obtain equation 178 at this link (pretty near the top; sorry, but I can't figure out how to put the equation here). It's from FitzPatrick's online notes for classical mechanics.

I don't see how he gets to 178.
