Hi, I want to solve a kinematics problem.
I have the following DE:
Where v=v(t) is the speed and t the time.
My goal is to get the space crossed in a period of time: from t=3.35 to t=4.77 (seconds).
I've tried solving this with Maple but I couldn't (I'm a Maple newbie).
This is what I tried:
1) I isolate the v and dv terms equation, so that:
2) Then I integrate that to get the time is function of the speed, t=f(v).
3) Then, as v=diff(s(t),t) I tried to isolate the s(t) terms to one side of the equation, in ordet to get s(t) (integrating it).
But I find this very difficult. The result of int(eq2,v) is insane.
Another thing I've thought about is to get v(t) by applying DE methods to eq1. That would be great. But I don't know how to do it.
Thanks a lot!
