A rifle with a barrel length of 50.86 cm fires a 7.06 g bullet with a horizontal speed of 449 m/s. The bullet strikes a block of wood and penetrates to a depth of 12.9 cm.
What resistive force (assumed to be constant) does the wood exert on the bullet?
The Attempt at a Solution
How long does it take the bullet to come to rest?
Shouldn't it just be t = v/a t = 449/ 5516.6785 = 8.14*10-2
Thats what I'm getting but its saying im wrong... Am I missing something?
