Unformatted text preview: f = kv , we have dv dt = F kv m = dv F kv = dt m Integrating once and using the fact that the piston starts from rest so that v = 0 when t = 0 , we find 1 k f n ( F kv ) + 1 k f nF = t m Regrouping terms yields f n w F kv F W = kt m = F kv = Fe kt/m Solving for v yields v = F k p 1 e kt/m Q Now, to solve for piston position, we use the fact that v = dx/dt so that dx dt = F k p 1 e kt/m Q Integrating once over t , x = F k t F k 8 t e kt/m dt = Ft k + F k m k p e kt/m 1 Q Finally, substituting for v as determined above, we conclude that x = Ft mv k...
