Movies and tv shows sometimes portray a person being thrown backwards a sizable distance as a result of being struck by a bullet. let's consider a forensics lab experiment. a 10.0-gram bullet is fired at 45 degrees above the horizontal with a velocity 378 m/s so that it immediately embeds itself into a 74.3-kg wood block that sits on a level floor. the bullet's trajectory is such that the combined mass (block plus bullet) is launched, without any rotation, also at an angle of 45 degrees above the horizontal. neglecting the effects of air resistance, calculate the maximum distance that the block of wood (with embedded projectile) would fly backwards. based on this calculation, evaluate the realism (or lack thereof) of the typical tv/movie portrayal.
