A skeet is shot at 25.0 m/s [H 75 U], 2 seconds later the rifleman shoots, striking the target in .4s. What initial velocty of the bullet is needed for it to hit the skeet?

I just need somone to confirm the answer I have. It's probably way off but I got 191 m/s [H 78 U]


thanks.

The bullet must travel the same distance as the skeet does.
The speed I got was a bit smaller.

Is this a one dimensional problem or what? Skeet are fired at an angle....

The numbers sound about right for... roughly 350 mph is an ok bullet speed (kinda on the lower end however)

I assumed it is one dimensional. If it isn't, my help is of course incorrect.
