Falling sphere with air drag force
We considered the drag force and argued that to a good approximation it ... To find the position as a function of time we integrate the differential equa- tion dy dt. = tanht. (14). Rather than work this out “by hand”, let's just look up the integral of tanht. ... v has dimensions of velocity, we should multiply (13) by l0/t0 = (mg/b)1/2.
