( m g=20 mathrm{kg} )
( m_{b}=30 mathrm{g}=0.03 mathrm{kg} )
rate of bulets fired ( =400 / mathrm{s} )
( mathrm{V}_{b}=400 mathrm{m} / mathrm{s} )
ab (acceleration) ( =mathrm{V}_{b} times ) rate
[
begin{aligned} & 400 times 400=16000 mathrm{m} / mathrm{s}_{2} text { Force, } mathrm{F}=mathrm{m}_{b} times a_{b}=0.03 times 160000=4800mathrm{N} end{aligned}
