Question:

A certain jet-powered ground vehicle is subjected to a nonlinear drag force. Its equation of motion, in British units, is
50 = f - (20u + 0.05u2)
Use a numerical method to solve for and plot the vehicle's speed as a function of time if the jet's force is constant at 8000 lb and the vehicle starts from rest.
