Homework Help: Force of a Bullet Problem

  1. Sep 20, 2006 #1
    A 4.5 g bullet leaves the muzzle of a rifle with a speed of 318 m/s. What force (assumed constant) is exerted on the bullet while it is traveling down the 0.75 m long barrel of the rifle? The answer is in Newtons.

    Thanks for any input :)

    What do you know about the bullet after a constant has force as acted upon it over a given distance? (force times distance = ?)
