# Consider a spaceship where the ship's thrusters can accelerate the ship by 10 pixels per second for each second that the thrust key is held down. If the friction induces a deceleration that is 10% of the ship's velocity per second, what is the maximal velocity of the ship? If you are having trouble, consider writing a short program to help understand this problem.
