A particle of mass m is projected vertically upwards, with an initial speedo of u, in a medium which exerts a resistance of magnitude mkv, where k is a positive constant and v is the speed of the particle after time t. Express, in terms of k, g and u, the time taken for the particle to reach its greatest height

2. Relevant equations

u - gt = 0

3. The attempt at a solution

u - gt - kvt = 0

I don't know how to express v in terms of u, g and k.
