A 6.0 g bullet leaves the muzzle of a rifle with a speed of 338 m/s. What force (assumed constant) is exerted on the bullet while it is traveling down the 0.9 m long barrel of the rifle?

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

x=vt

a=v/t

3. The attempt at a solution

x=vt

.9m=338m/s t

t=.0027s

a=v/t

a=338 m/s /.0027s

a=126937.8 m/s^{2}

F=ma

F=.006kg (126937.8 m/s^{2})

F=761.6N
