1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A boat with initial speed v[o] is launched, and experiences a retarding force of F = -ae^Bv, where a=alpha=constant and b=beta=constant Find v(t) Find Time and Distance for the boat to stop 2. Relevant equations F=ma 3. The attempt at a solution the second part for tmie and distance, I am attempting to solve using mathcad with a perturbative approach incrementing vt o find dv/dt, reinserting v-dv/dt until dv/dt approaches closely to zero. This makes sense, however, only with known values for alpha and beta. I can't really think of a way to formulate v(t).
