» Gravitation » Gravitational Acceleration
Appeared in Year: 2010
Question
A soldier with a machine gun, falling from an airplane gets detached from his parachute. He is able to resist the downward acceleration if the shoots 40 bullets a second at the speed of 500 m/s. If the weight of a bullet is 49 gm, what is the weight of the man with the gun? Ignore resistance due to air and assume the acceleration due to gravity g = 9.8 ms ^{2}
