Hey guys, I'm stuck on this question, part b)

I figured out a) and v(t) for V(0) = 0 ends up being

k

(Sorry, latex was being difficult)

But then when I try to figure out the limit as t->infinity i get 0. I'm pretty sure the terminal velocity of jumping out of an airplane wouldn't be 0

I'm hoping I just made a stupid mistake somewhere!
