I m solving the problem in which the drop is falling from some height and its size is increasing with the rate dm/dt=kMv where v is the velocity of the drop at that instant , so we have to find the terminal velocity of the drop gained due to air drag,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The problem is that if the drop gains the terminal velocity then the mass will increase with its rate as defined , then the forces balanced are disturbed and there is no any terminal velocity more , the same thing is going to happen all the time so will it gain the terminal velocity any time ? If possible then how?
