A soldier is tasked with measuring the muzzle velocity of a new rifle. Knowing the principles of projectile motion, he decides to perform a simple experiment at the indoor firing range. The soldier hangs a target a distance of d = 101 m from the end of the barrel. The rifle is mounted so that the bullet exits moving horizontally at the same height as the bullseye. After 6 trials, the soldier tabulates the values he measured for the distance, h, from the bullseye to the bullet strike, h (av) = 6.67 cm. What is the most accurate muzzle velocity that the soldier can report to his sergeant? _____ m/s
