1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A bullet of mass 0.002 kg initially moving at 510 m/s embeds itself in a large fixed piece of wood and travels 0.78 m before coming to rest. Assume that the acceleration of the bullet is constant. 2. Relevant equations What force is exerted by the wood on the bullet? 3. The attempt at a solution In order to find the force, I had to solve for acceleration using the velocity vs function equation: v^2=V0^2 + 2a[tex]\Deltax[/tex] a=v^2-V0^2/2[tex]\Deltax[/tex] a=0-(510)^2/2(.78) I plugged in the numbers to the equation f=ma, but it doesnt work. Can anybody help me?
