 Homework Statement:

A particle q > 0, mass = m, v = ##\vec{v}##
Magnetic field ##\vec{B} = B\hat{u}##
friction ##\vec{F} = k\vec{v}##
At t = 0
##x = x_0 , y = y_0, z = z_0##
##v_x = v_{0x} , v_y = v_{0y}, v_z = v_{0z}##
 Relevant Equations:
 ##\vec{B} = qvB sin \theta##
Hi,
I have to find the motion of a particles ##(x,y,z)##. However, I'm not sure where to begin.
Is it correct to split the problem and first find what's the motion in the x direction then y and z.
For exemple,
##m \frac{d^2x}{dt^2} = kv_{0x} + qv_{0x}B sin 90 ##
##m\int\int \frac{d^2x}{dt^2} = \int \int kv_{0x} + qv_{0x}B sin 90 ##
