Upon a flat only 10 m high (Is that possible?) there are two guns A and B attached together making a vertical angle of 60 degrees when A is flat on roof. They fire at the same time and has the same reloading time. Both guns are capable of giving an initial velocity of 5√...

Differential Equations
The velocity v of a freefalling skydiver is well modeled by the differential equation m*dv/dt=mg-kv^2 where m is the mass of the skydiver, g is the gravitational constant, and k is the drag coefficient determined by the position of the driver during the dive. (a)Find the ...
