e.) A shotgun fires a slug of lead of mass 28 g with a muzzle velocity of 450 m/s. The slug acquires this velocity while it accelerates along the barrel of the shotgun, which is 70 cm long.
e1.) What is the impulse the shotgun gives the slug?
e2.) Estimate the average impulsive force; assume constant acceleration of the slug along the barrel.
