Hello everyone!

I'm unable to solve this differential equation while solving a physics question. So please help me in solving this equation:

\[m\frac{dv}{dt}=mg -\lambda\frac{v}{x(x-d)}\] or

\[m\frac{vdv}{dx}=mg-\lambda \frac {v }{x(x-d)}.\]

\(UPDATE\):

\(Here\) \(I\) \(want\) \(to\) \(express\) \(either\)

\(v=f(t)\)

or

\( v=f(x)\).

\(Given\).

where all terms have the usual meaning:

'\(\lambda \)' is constant.

\(v\) is the velocity of the rod (variable)

\(m\) is the mass of the rod (constant)

\(x\) is the distance from a fixed point to the rod (variable)

\(t\) is time (obviously a variable)

and \(d\) is the intial distance (constant)

\(Note\):

This is a part of a question that I'm writing. I'm unable to proceed further because of this difficult differential equation.

Please help! Thanks.

You should get : \(mdv = mgdt - \frac {\lambda dx}{x(x-d)}\)

You also need to know three initial conditions : Initial time which is \(0\),initial position and initial velocity.

Did I make a mistake in doing this?

Yes i did it in same way...!!

But I want to express velocity as either \(v=f(t)\) or \(v=f(x)\) so that further question is completed. Since Both time and distance are different. I mean to say if I want to calculate say velocity at the instant say at t=10 s then how could I know velocity at that instant since position is also unkown at that instant of Time. ?? and Also according to this question \(v = \frac {d(x-d)}{dt}\). which is also same thing as \(v = \frac {dx}{dt}\).

I believe the differential equation is not meant to be solved by wolfram alpha itself.

I don't think I'll be of much help on the problem, but certainly the LaTeX needed editing. Is this the way you would like it to appear?
