Unformatted text preview: t = 3 / ( αv ) . For any time afterwards, v = 0 , so x stays constant at 1 /α . Thus, x ( t ) = ( 1 α ± 1(11 3 αv t ) 3 ) , for ≤ t ≤ 3 αv 1 α , for t > 3 αv (b) From previous part, x max = 1 α . (c) As t → ∞ , the velocity will reach the terminal velocity, regardless of v . When v = v term = terminal velocity, the acceleration is zero, so we have m dv dt = 0 = Kb √ v term , or v term = K 2 b 2 . 2...
