Oh. That's a 9? Damnit. When I post my answer, substitute 9 for g, lol. I've been doing too much mechanics.

You can split your original function into two logs by observing that .

6. Basically, the only thing you've really misinterpreted is how to use the reciprocal as a power, rather than having that nasty double fraction.

I would personally use Method 1.

I knew that way. that's the one in the solution bank.
I just wanted to know why this one was wrong.

Lol. No worries. I just wish I'd seen the thread sooner :P.

As a heads up, if you end up doing M3-M5, you'll get used to differentiating and integrating (usually by parts or substitution) reciprocal logs (i.e, variable mass questions, resisted motion questions). They don't turn up that much in C3 and C4, which makes them a little surprising when you first come across them in Mechanics.
