(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I intend to use the Runge-Kutta method but to do so I need to be able to find the velocity [tex]\frac{dx(t)}{dt}[/tex] from the acceleration and I need some pointers on how to get that from the equation below. In other words I am having difficulty integrating the equation wrt time.

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\frac{d^{2}x(t)}{dt^{2}} = \frac{k}{x(t)^{2}}[/tex]

where k is a constant.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank-you.
