1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A .22 rifle bullet, traveling at 350 m/s, strikes a block of soft wood, which it penetrates to a depth of 0.130m . The block of wood is clamped in place and doesn't move. The mass of the bullet is 1.80g. Assume a constant retarding force.

??-How much time is required for the bullet to stop? (in seconds)

??-What force, in newtons, does the wood exert on the bullet?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

well honestly, i have no idea where to begin.... can some one please help me
