When a rifle is fired, the person firing the rifle absorbs the recoil. Consider an Olympic biathlete firing a competition rifle. Compitition rifles have a mass of 3.5 kg and fire a 22 calibur bullet with a mass of 2 g. the bullet leaves the barrel at 365 m/s. the length of time if firing is 5 milliseconds. What is the magnitude of the force absorbed by the athlete?
