An object with a mass if falling with a force that is equal to its own weight of 25 pounds. The air resistance causes a decelerate force equal to 1/2 the velocity of the object at any time. If the object falls from rest, what is the velocity of the object after 8 seconds? I'm just confused at the wordings of the question. I just cannot find a way to start. I tried to use to formula v(t) = (mg/b)t - (m^2*g / b^2) + m/b*vknot but the formula did not make sense to me. I was wondering if there are any other formulas I could use to solve this problem.
