Alright, last time I made a post I got some great help from the people who contributed. Again, I'm not interested in answers but a guided discussion on processes would be extremely helpful! I'm so close to completing these equations but I just need a push in the right direction. Please help a physics student out!

**4a. A 30-06 caliber hunting rifle fires a bullet of mass 0.00976 kg with a velocity of 421 m/s to the right. The rifle has a mass of 2.95 kg.**

Recoil speed of rifle is 1.39287 m/s.

If the rifle is stopped by the hunter’s shoulder

in a distance of 2.14 cm, what is the magnitude of the average force exerted on the shoulder by the rifle?

Answer in units of NRecoil speed of rifle is 1.39287 m/s.

Answer in units of N

**4b. Is this another kinetics equation? I'm looking for force but there's distance involved so does that mean I have to find velocity?****4c. It's simple but for some reason I cannot seem to know where to start. Any suggestions?**
