A horizontal rifle is fired at a bull's-eye. The muzzle speed of the bullet is 745 m/s. The barrel is pointed directly at the center of the bull's-eye, but the bullet strikes the target 0.020 m below the center. What is the horizontal distance between the end of the rifle and the bull's-eye?

can someone solve?

  • Physics -

    how long does it take for the bullet to fall .020m?

    h= 1/2 g t^2
    now, having time t,

    distance=horizontalvelocity*time
    solve for distance.

  • Physics -

    What does the h you use stand for?
