What is recoil velocity?
Asked by | 18th Aug, 2010, 12:00: AM
When a bullet a fired, the initial momentum of the bullet + gun system is zero, and after the fire it's also zero, since no external force acts on the system, and to counter the momentum of bullet the gun assumes a velocity backwards or in opposite direction to the bullet, and it's called recoil velocity.
