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

A particle with mass m slides down from rest on a smooth plane inclined at an angle of theta with the horizontal . The particle, besides subjected to gravity experiences a resistive force of magnitude mkv ,with v as its velocity at time t and k as a positive constant. Show that

[tex]v=\frac{g\sin \theta}{k}(1-e^{-kt})[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

i started with mg sin theta-mkv =ma

g sin theta -kv=a

do i integrate to get the velocity function? I tried but it didn't work.
