- Homework Statement:
- A paintball with a mass of 0.15 kg is fired from a paintball gun that has a mass of 5.5 kg. The paintball leaves the gun with a velocity of 45 m/s [N] having accelerated for 0.10 s. Calculate the acceleration of the paintball gun.
- Relevant Equations:
Mass of paintball = 0.15 kg
Mass of paintball gun = 5.5 kg
initial velocity of paintball = 45 m/s [N]
time = 0.10 s
I've been stuck on this for sometime now, and am unsure how to approach this question.
