# Math Help - Integrating with another variable help!!

1. ## 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 $t.$
