I have a physics problem and are woundering if someone can please help me!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here's the problem: A bullet of mass 20 g strikes a fixed block of wood at a speed of 320 m/s. The bullet embeds itself in the block of wood, penetrating to a depth of 6.0 cm. Calculate the average net force acting on the bullet while it is being brought to rest. (1.7 x 14^4 N)

would have been nice with the whole calculation.

Thanks! :!!)
