I posted this in general math, but then I saw that calculus and analysis was a more appropriate place for it. I am looking for a solution to this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When a magnet is dropped from rest near an iron wall, it accelerates downward due to gravity at constant acceleration. It also accelerates toward the wall, and the closer it gets to the wall, the greater the acceleration. Can anyone refer me to a solution that would give the position of the magnet as a function of time?
