A rifle with a weight of 35 N fires a 4.0 g bullet with a speed of 250 m/s.

(a) Find the recoil speed of the rifle.

___m/s

(b) If a 700 N man holds the rifle firmly against his shoulder, find the recoil speed of the man and rifle.

___m/s

Ah, do this the same way we did the guy on skates.

I need help with the same question but different numbers. how do you solve it?

• Physics..help please -

Go look at the last problem I did with jake, wait a sec and I will copy it here, conservation of momentum with zero before the shot.

A 715 N man stands in the middle of a frozen pond of radius 10.0 m. He is unable to get to the other side because of a lack of friction between his shoes and the ice. To overcome this difficulty, he throws his 1.2 kg physics textbook horizontally toward the north shore at a speed of 10.0 m/s. How long does it take him to reach the south shore?

first find his mass in kilograms
m = 715 / 9.81

then use conservation of momentum
(total of 0 before the toss)
0 = (715/9.81) v - 1.2 * 10

solve for v
how long does it take to go 10 meters at v meters/second?

I still can't figure it out with this question. i get the one you did with jake but not this one.

A rifle with a weight of 35 N fires a 4.0 g bullet with a speed of 250 m/s.

(a) Find the recoil speed of the rifle.

___m/s
------------------------------
All is still. Momentum = 0
A shot rings out.
The rifle goes left, the bullet goes right.
Momentum is STILL zero (no outside forces)
m rifle = 35/9.8
m bullet = .004
so
0 = -(35/9.8) v + .004 * 250

• Physics..help please -

for the second part add the mass of the man (700/9.8) to the mass of the rifle and repeat the calculation

• Physics..help please -

A bullet is shot from a rifle aimed horizontally at the same time a bullet is dropped from the same height as the gun's barrel. Which bullet hits the ground first?
