    There are two k's one is K dash and then other is k.

    k is defined by reference to k dash and the square root of A

    they have k' as a positive constant.

    they then have -k'/sqrtA times sqrt(h)

    so they say that k'/sqrtA is a positive constant k, leaving -k sqrt(h)

    i.e. k and k' are two different constants.

    They have mentioned that  k=\dfrac{k'}{\sqrt{A}}

    You are confusing  k with  k' , both are different constants.

    Thanks but why is k' equivalent to (-k' . A^-1/2)


    Sorry i understand now thanks

     k = \dfrac{k'}{\sqrt{A}}

k \not= -\dfrac{k'}{\sqrt{A}}

    Probably a typo from you.

     \frac {dh}{dt} = \frac{-k'\sqrt{Ah}}{A} = (\frac{-k'}{\sqrt{A}})\sqrt{h} = -k\sqrt{h}

     where  k = (\frac{k'}{\sqrt{A}})

    I think thats what raheem94 was trying to point out

    I know what he was trying to say. But what I wrote is correct because k is defined, in this case, to be negative.
