Simple question about gravity and force.... I'm hoping you can help. My husband and I have been discussing a situation and we would love to find an answer. Any direction you can give me would be great. (Please note, I haven't taken a physics class in about 15 years) If you shot someone in the head with a gun at point blank range and you shot the same gun straight up into the air and the bullet came down and hit the person on the head would you be shooting this person with the same amount of force and/or speed?
