Kinematics Aplication problem - variable acceleration.
Hi I need help with this problem.
A bullet is fired into a sandbag. The acceleration of the bullet within sandbag is
-40√v, where v is velocity in ft/sec. When will the bullet stop if it enters the sandbag at 950 ft/sec.

Than you.
Start by setting up an appropriate differential equation. Can you do that?

***
separate variables and solve for velocity as a function of time
