A bullet is fired through a board 10.0 cm thick in such a way that the bullet’s line of motion is perpendicular to the face of the board. If the initial speed of the bullet is 400 m/s and it emerges from the other side of the board with a speed of 300 m/s, find (a) the acceleration of the bullet as it passes through the board and (b) the total time the bullet is in contact with the board.
