Expert Answer:

  Let initial velocity of the bullet be u and constant retardation be a.

        After penetrating 3 cm its velocity becomes = u/2

        From v2 = u2 - 2as

        (u/2)2 = u2 - 2as

.·.  a  = u2/8

Let further it will penetrate through distance x and stops at some point

        0 =  (u/2)2 - 2 (u2/8)x

.·.  x = 1 cm
