    Integrating with another variable help!!

    Is it possible to integrate -(1/2)vdt, with respect to t?

    I really am at a loss.. please help me! Is it differential equations? I had (dv/dt)=(-(1/2))v initially

    You're not going to integrate -(1/2)vdt wrt to t.

    The equation that you have is solved by separation of variables.

    Rewrite it as \frac{dv}{v}=-\frac{1}{2}dt, and integrate the lhs wrt v, the rhs wrt t.
