Hello!
Who can prove the maclaurin equations:
ln(1+kv/mg)= kv/mg - k^2v^2/2m^2g^2 +....

Generally we don't give answers on this forum, just help people along.

Do you know how to create and/or prove maclaurin equations?

If so you know you could just let x = kv/mg and look at ln(1 + x) about x = 0.

Cute! Back in the General Physics forum amin is telling people that if they post their questions on his website, he will answer them! I wonder if he is planning to do that by posting them himself here!

Amin, do you know the general formula for the MacLauring series (i.e. Taylor series about x= 0)?
