Answer to Question #4327 in Mechanics | Relativity for melanie
A bullet is fired from a rifle that is held 1.5m above the ground in a horizontal position. The Initial speed of the bullet is 1210 m/s. find (a) the time it takes for the bullet to strike the ground (b) the horizontal distance traveled by the bullet
(a) the time ittakes for the bullet to strike the ground gt^2/2=1.5 => t=sqrt(3/g)=0.553 s (b) the horizontal distance traveled by thebullet S=1210*0.553=669.13 m
I am writing to express my gratitude for all the help this website offered to me in times of need. I believe this website is not a "cheating" source for "lazy" students, but an important source for those of us who are burdened with more than we can bear, have little to no facilities to handle the stress and workload, and are in serious need of help given at an affordable price. Thank you so very much to all those involved with this website who have helped students like me in desperate need.
