A bullet is fired from a rifle, emerging at 340 m/s. It strikes a sandbag some distance away, having lost 10% of its velocity due to air resistance. if it penetrates the sandbag to a depth of 12 meters, how long did it take for the bullet to come to rest in the bag?

A 3.00-g bullet (c = 0.0305 cal/g . C° = 128 J / kg . C°) moving at 180 m/s enters a bag of sand and stops. By what amount does the temperature of the bullet change if 80% its KE becomes thermal energy that is transferred to the bullet? Thank ´s fir your help!
