Could anyone help with this? a(t)= -g/b^2(v(t)^2 - b^2) i need to find t in terms of v, b, g, vo, I think I need to separate the variables but not sure how to progress. Thanks.

Thanks. Please use parenthesis! I assume this is the following: The integral on the right is trivial. The integral on the left can be done by a partial fraction expansion: So going back to the original problem we have: So finally: -Dan
thats spot on, thanks! one question- can you explain what you meant by the integral in trivial? thanks again
