b.) the time needed to stop the bullet in sec.

c. acceleration of the bullet in meters/sec.

**drwls**, Saturday, January 23, 2010 at 3:08ama) initial kinetic energy = (force) x (penetration distance)

Solve for the force, F = .

Use kg and meters for doing the calculation.

b) Vaverage * time = (Vo/2)*time = 0.15 m

Solve for the stopping time.

Vo is the initial velocity, 380 m/s

c) a = F/m = Vo/(stopping time)

(You should get the same answer wither way)
