    Can Someone please help me with this differential equation

    Accounting for viscous drag and fuel-burning, the one-dimensional equation of motion for a rocket-propelled vehicle travelling along a horizontal surface is

    m dv/dt=-1/2 ρAC_D v^2-k dm/dt

    where is the density of air, is the effective frontal area of the vehicle, is the drag coefficient, is the rocketís thrust coefficient. Furthermore, if the mass of the vehicle after fuelling is and the fuel burn rate is a linear , then one may write

    m=3000-6t


    • Substitute this expression for and the values of , , and into the differential equation above to show that


    dv/dt=(18,000-0.15v^2)/(3000-6t)

    How solve this numerically using Eulerís method in Excel with the initial condition and the step size?
