Okay, got it ^^

Thank you very much. If you ever need something, ask me. Cause I sure owe you one. However I don't think there is anything I could help you with, except maybe javascript or something along those lines.

comment Equations for an object moving linearly but with air resistance taken into account?
Oh... Well I probably didnt get it because we do it differently here in switzerland, we use an apostrophe to the right of v instead of a dot ontop of it. But it's all clear now, thanks.

Okay, got it working now! Thank you so much. I managed to figure out a formula for x(t) too. Btw, am I right that the C in tanh−1(v/vterm)=F*t/m*vterm+C is the initial velocity, which would be why it isnt in the formula for an initial velocity of zero?

Saw you edits just now... Things are much more clear now.

Hmm... not bad. I should be able to get the formula for x now, also I found it really cool that you gave me a formula where I could directly insert the terminal velocity, that could come in real handy later.

Honestly i dont get how to solve it. And what the v with the dot ontop of it is supposed to mean. Is that supposed to be an apostrophe?

comment Equations for an object moving linearly but with air resistance taken into account?
Man... why do I always get missunderstood. What I am trying to say is: I have my object, it has a constant force (Fc) pulling it in one direction, and it has air drag (Fd), therefore the resulting force will be Fc-Fd. Imagine maybe a rocket flying in a direction, thanks to its engine it has a certain acceleration, but it also has air drag slowing it down as it moves. You get me now?

My description probably wasnt clear enough: It is being accelerated with a constant acceleration, which could be resulting from a constant force, and it is being acted upon by the air drag force. I'm sorry if I wasnt clear enough

Tell me if I'm wrong but the object also has an acceleration of its own, not just the air drag. And I dont see a(the acceleration) anywhere in your formula. Also you said no other force than drag, so I guess you must have missed that my movement is accelerated, which is somewhat like a force. Still thank you for your efforts. PS: I'd be eternally grateful if you could also include acceleration.
