can you help me olve this (simple?) differential equation(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] m \ddot{y} = -mg - \beta \dot{y} [/tex]

integrate once and i get

[tex] \dot{y} = -gt - \frac{\beta y}{m} + C [/tex]

also can be written as

[tex] \frac{dy}{dt} = -gt - \frac{\beta y}{m} + C [/tex]

both are equivalent

basically trying to get the y on one side adn the t on the other side. HJva tried many ways but cant isolate the two. Any suggestions?
