1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data When Danny was 13, he went deer hunting with his grandfather. He decided that he didn't like the "kick" of the gun, so he pressed himself against a tree before firing a 12-gauge (3.5kg) loaded with a deer slug (0.22kg). Evaluate this idea. It was a big mistake. It really won't matter. It was a good idea. Based on your knowledge of momentum conservation, explain the reasoning for your answer. 2. Relevant equations Conservation of Momentum & Energy ΔEsys=Wsurr+Q 3. The attempt at a solution I believe it would be a good idea because the kick would transfer from the gun to your shoulder, and then into the wall due to the conservation of momentum and energy.
