Friction and Equations of Motion

A particle of mass m moves under the influence of constant force f and the friction force γ(xdot)n

Its equation of motion reads:

m(x-double dot) + γ(xdot)n = f

Find x(t) for n=1 and n=2 if x=0 and x-dot=0 at t=0

Check that your solutions exhibit the correct behavior in the limit.
