A: ### Quick Answer

The distance a bullet travels through water depends on the shape and initial velocity of the round. Generally, the faster a round is moving, the less distance it travels underwater. Likewise, blunt-tip bullets retain more velocity underwater than their pointed counterparts.

Know MorePointed-tip rounds with a muzzle velocity of 1,000 feet per second travel between 2 and 15 feet, although they are slowed enough that they are non-fatal beyond 3 feet. Similarly, pointed-tip rounds fired at 2,500, 2,800 or 3,000 feet per second will fragment in the first three feet, thus having a negligible travel distance. Blunt-tip rounds with a muzzle velocity between 900 and 2,000 feet per second can travel up to 8 feet and still be fatal; beyond that they are slowed.

## What is the formula of linear velocity?

A:

Full Answer >**The formula of linear velocity is v = x / t, where "v" denotes the velocity, "x" represents the total distance covered and "t" indicates the amount of time it takes to cover "x."**In physics, linear velocity refers to an object's speed as it moves along a straight line.Filed Under: - Q:
## What is average velocity?

A:

Full Answer >**Average velocity is the displacement of an object, divided by the time it took to cover that distance.**Displacement is the straight line distance between the starting point and ending point of an object's motion. Velocity is referred to as a vector quantity because it has both magnitude and direction.Filed Under: - Q:
## What is the distance traveled by an automobile moving at a constant velocity?

A:The distance traveled by an automobile moving at a constant velocity depends upon how much time it travels. The formula to determine distance is rate multiplied by time, so multiplying the velocity by the amount of time the car travels yields its distance.

## How is speed calculated?

A:

Full Answer >**Speed is also known as velocity, and it is calculated by dividing the distance traveled by the amount of time it took to cover that distance.**This is expressed as a standard equation: V = D / T.Filed Under:
