In a ballistics test, a 25.0 g bullet traveling horizontally at 1100 m/s goes through a 30.0 cm-thick 450 kg stationary target and emerges with a speed of 900 m/s. The target is free to slide on a smooth horizontal surface.
How long is the bullet in the target?
i tried to use this equation : t = d/v_avg
900-1100 / 2 = -100 = vavg
.3=-100 t
t= .003
but it is saying that it is incorrect. can someone tell me what i am doing wrong?
