Evaluation of recoil velocity of the gun
CBSE Class IX science has 5 chapters of physics, among them ‘Force and laws of motion‘ is very important, in this chapter you will study Newton’s law of motion, force, momentum and conservation of momentum. Momentum is the product of mass and velocity. Although there are so many applications of conservation of momentum. One of the applications based on conservation of momentum is when a bullet is fired by a gun then gun moves in the backward direction with a velocity known as recoil velocity of the gun.

When a bullet is fired by the gun and gun moves in backword direction with a particular speed known as recoil velocity of the gun, it happens because the gun exerts a force to the bullet and according to third law of motion the bullet also exerts a force to the gun, the bullet gains a large momentum which causes the bullet move in the forward direction with large velocity and the same momentum is transferred to the gun, gun acquires a momentum due to which it gains a velocity which is recoil velocity of the gun. Here we are going to discuss how to evaluate the recoil velocity of the gun. After you study this post evaluation of the recoil velocity of the gun, at the end there are given few unsolved questions which you can solve easily.

When a bullet is shooted by a gun then determine the recoil velocity of the gun. We can understand how to evaluate recoil Velocity of gun by the following way.
Let the mass of gun is and its recoil velocity is the mass of the bullet is and it is shooted by the gun with the velocity of . Since the initialy bullet and gun both are in rest before the bullet is fired, therefore the intial velocity of gun, and initial velocity of the bullet .
As we know the momentum = mass × velocity, According to the conservation of momentum
Initial momentum = Final momentum
The initial velocity of the gun ×mass of the gun + Initial velocity of bullet × mass of bullet = Final velocity of the gun ×mass of the gun + Final velocity of the bullet × mass of the bullet.
The final velocity of the gun = Recoil velocity of the gun
The negative sign of velocity shows that the gun moves in the opposite direction of the bullet.
Similar questions.
From a gun of mass 4 kg. A bullet of mass 50 gm is fired with an initial velocity of 35 m/s. Calculate the recoil velocity of the gun.
Ans. Mass of gun, = 4 kg, Initial velocity of the gun, , Mass of bullet, = 50 gm = 0.05 kg, Initial velocity of the bullet, , Final velocity of the gun (recoil velocity of gun),, Final velocity of bullet ,
= –0.4375≈– 0.44
Hence the recoil velocity of the gun =– 0.44 m/s, its meaning is that after the bullet is fired, the gun moves in the backward direction with the velocity of 0.44 m/s.
