    Here's my working:

     80 = D \times V
     Fr = k V^2

    F=ma
    \frac{80}{V} - kV^2 = 100,000a

    \frac{80-kV^3}{100,000V} = a = v\frac{dv}{dx}

    First of all, shouldn't there be a K (constant) since it does say that resistance to motion is proportional to the square of her speed.
    I don't know how they get 8000 and how I have got an extra 0 for my 100,000. I thought that it might be something to do with me working in Ws and meant to be working in kW, but if I change it to kW, then it just becomes 0.08...which is even worse >__>

    Thanks

    You have to find k.

    Use the fact that Vmax = 20 and equate D to Fr for that speed.

    I remember this question from last summer's paper :bawling:

    The method and answer seem so obvious now! However i am resitting M3 on the 29th...oh the joy!!

    Ah well, looking back at it now, we realise what big plonkers we were back there for not being able to do simple differentiation when it is disguised as Physics... Ah well, now we are a little wiser and older, we can now achieve something; the feat of not being able to do the complicated differentiation when it comes to odd looking Physics questions...

    Nope, nada.

    I think I erased most memories of M3 after the exam violated me, like tentacles or something. :nothing:

    You have to use F=ma, then find k!
