Answer to Question #16943 in Mechanics | Relativity for aruj

Question #16943
a bullet moving with a speed of v can just penetrate two planks of equal thickness. find the no. of such planks that the bullet will penetrate if its speed is doubled
Expert's answer
The energy of the bullet will increase

N =& (m(2V)²/2) / (mV²/2) = (2V)² / V² = 4

times if its speed is doubled. So, the bullet will penetrate 4 times more planks, that is

M = 2*4 = 8

such planks.
