We commonly see Superman being shot and bullets bounce off of him. Suppose Mr. Bad shoots Superman with 4.00 kg bullets at a rate of 100 bullets/min for 9.00 s. If the speed of each bullet is 480.00 m/s and rebounds straight back with no change in speed, calculate the magnitude of the average force experienced by Superman due to all the bullets.
