    Over the last 40 years or so, geometry has not received as much attention as they used to.

    apinix's Request

    \ddot {x} = \frac {dv}{dt} = \frac {P-mkv}{m} \\ \\ \therefore \frac {m dv}{P - mkv} = dt \Rightarrow \int \frac {mdv}{P - mkv} = \int dt \Rightarrow t = -\frac {1}{k} \ln (P - mkv) + C \\ \\ \therefore t_1 = -\frac {1}{k} \ln (P - 2mk) + C $ and $ t_2 = - \frac {1}{k}(P - 4mk) + C \\...
