Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics B Questions and Answers  
Question by Student AME536B
Dr. Parent, for Question 3 part A, I'm not sure that the equation I am starting with is correct. Using force balance, and considering inertial terms to be 0, I would end up with $$ m \frac{dv}{dt} = F_D -F_g = 0$$ where,
$F_D$ = Drag force
$F_g$ = Force due to gravity

But no matter how I integrate this, I do not get a solution that would be similar to part C. I just wanted to confirm that I am starting the right way.
Yes this is correct. In part (a), the drag force should be equal to the gravitational pull force.
