A 106g bullet is fired from a rifle having a barrel 0.441m long.Assuming the origin is placed where the bullet begins to move,the force exerted on the bullet by the expanding gas is $F=a+bx-cx^2$,where $a=13500N,b=8170N/m,c=24000N/m^2$,with $x$ in meters.With what velocity does the bullet exit the barrel?

$\begin{array}{1 1}6061.83J\\6051.83J\\6000J\\2699.29J\end{array} $

Can you answer this question?

Answer : 6061.83J
The work is found by integrating the force over the distance
$W=\int\limits_{x_i}^{x_f} F.ds$
For the barrel of length $l_n=0.441m$,we need only change the limits of integration,
$W=\int\limits_0^{l_n} (a+bx-cx^2)dx$
