Been working on this problem for an hour now.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Rescale

(dh/dt) = s - a*p*g*(h + (h^2)/R)

to obtain the dimensionless ODE

y' = a - y - y^2

It seems that the differential equation involving dh/dt is a ricatti equation and I tried finding a particular solution but have had no luck. Any help is welcomed.

Thanks.
