It is well known that bullets fired at Superman simply bounce off his chest. Suppose that a gangster sprays Superman's chest with bullets of mass m = 2.6 g at a rate of R = 140 bullets/min. The speed of each bullet is v = 510 m/s. Suppose the bullets rebound with no change in speed. What is the average force exerted by the stream of bullets on Superman's chest?
