The velocity v = v ( t ) of a skydiver falling to the ground is governed by the equation m dv dt = mg - kv 2 , (1.1) where m is the mass of the skydiver, g is the acceleration due to gravity, and k > 0 is a constant related to the amount of air resistance (the drag constant ).
3 (a) Obtain the analytical solution for v ( t ), assuming that v (0) = 0. (b) Find the limit of v ( t ) as t → ∞ . This limiting velocity is called the terminal velocity . (c) Give a graphical analysis of this problem, and thereby re-derive a formula for the terminal velocity.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
