Solution

Initial velocity, = 350 m/s
Final velocity, v = 0
Distance travelled by the bullet before coming to rest, s = 5 m

\[\text{ Acceleration, a } = \frac{v^2 - u^2}{2s}\]

\[\Rightarrow a = \frac{0 - \left( 350 \right)^2}{2 \times 0 . 05} = - 12 . 2 \times {10}^5 \text{ m } / s^2\]

∴ Deceleration = 12.2 × 105 m/s2
