Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1600 bullets per minute = 600/60 = 10 bullets per second F = n * m * v = 10 * 200 * 25 * 10^3 = 2N

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See he calculated for U how much Momentum is given to ALL the bullets flyingout in the period of 1 second . IT IS the change in momentum of the gun too  with a minus sign of course

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the slowest rate of acceleration of a bullet is 0.1 seconds, then 0.025 x (200/0.1) [F = ma] = 50 N. So that would be the force from each fired bullet. We get the 0.1 second as the gun fires 10 rounds per second.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0force exerted by each bullet is impulsive therefore...force exerted by each bullet is 5 N that is the force which should be maintained to keep gun stationary
