Homework Help: Help Required On Speed Of A Bullit

  1. Sep 29, 2004 #1
    A BULLIT IS FIRED HORIZONTALLY AT A SPEED OF 200MS-1 AT A TARGET WHICH IS 100M AWAY.
    ignoring air resistance calculate how far the bullit has fallen when it hits the target.
    Explain whether air resistance would cause the bullit to fall a greater or lesser ammount than the distance u have calculated.
    p.s.
    iv calculated the time for the bullit to reach the target 0.5s

    Now that you know the time it takes for the bullet to get to the target, try to find what happens in the y-directional motion.
