**Differential Equation 4**

A differential equation governing the velocity v of a falling mass m to air resistance proportional to the square of the instantaneous velocity is m dv/dt=mg-kv^2 where k>0 is a constant of proportionality. The positive direction is downward. (a)Solve the equation subject ...

"A wave travels from one medium to another, and the wavelength decreases. What happens to the velocity and the frequency?" I know that frequency will remain the same, because it is controlled only by the source. But does the velocity decrease? According to Snell's law, ...
