I have posted a link there to this topic so the OP can see my work.Luke Skywalker (m=100kg) fell from rest off the antenna below the cloud city of Bespin (height=100000 m).

Assume that he missed the Millennium Falcon waiting below and continued to plummet. Suppose the gravitational acceleration of Bespin is 10 m/s^2, and the force of drag provides resistance proportional to the magnitude of his velocity, with a drag coefficient of k=4. This question is also from my differential class thank you in advance.

Additional Details:

a) Find Luke's velocity and displacement.

b) Find Luke's limiting velocity.

c) Suppose it would take 200 seconds for the millennium falcon to shake of the pursuing TIE fighters and turn around for a second rescue attempt. How far from the ground would the rescue be made?
