The task

The Challenge Problem from PTC

The train system consists of a straight-line tunnel connecting the two cities. The train uses a MAGLEV (magnetic levitation) system consisting of permanent magnets in the tracks and superconductive electromagnets in the train. To accelerate it uses a combination of electromagnetic force and gravitational pull of the Earth. The deceleration comes also from the gravitational pull of the Earth, as well as aerodynamic drag of the train.Problem: Compute the arrival time in San Francisco assuming constant propulsion force.
