Question: consider a body of mass m which is at rest...

Question details

Consider a body of mass m which is at rest at height xo above the ground initially (at t 0) and which is free to fall.Tthere are two forces acting on the body: the gravity force and the Stokes drag force.The latter is given by F v, where v is the velocity of the body 1) Introduce the vertical coordinate axis directed upward with origin at the ground level and write down 2) Write the equation of motion as a first-order ODE for the component of the velocity v(t)- xlt) and solve it subject to the initial condition formulated in part 1) 3) Find position of the body as a function of time for t>0
