Homework Help: Partial Differentiation

  1. Mar 8, 2010 #1
    I am in the middle of finding a general solution for an equation . However I am stuck here:

    c^2 ∫ dv/ (v^2 -c^2) = ∫ g dt

    I know Partial diiferentiation would be the best approach however I cannot really get started. Help appreciated

    Hi Jamiey1988! :smile:

    (try using the X2 tag just above the Reply box :wink:)

    Are you trying to integrate ∫ dv/(v2 - c2) ?

    Either use partial fractions, or use a trig substitution. :smile:
