Exactly! The force is pulling at both with the same g = 9,81 m/s^2...

Obvious isnt it? Gravitational force is constant.

That is why every fired bullet out of a gun folows the ballistic curve.. and will never fly strait.. :flop:

I know this post is old but maybe someone has still got their disclose.tv radar? Lol.

In response to the question, surely the extra force the gun has and it's trajectory will allow the bullet being shot to travel longer? The distance is also longer as it's trajectory is more curved where as the bullet being dropped from the hand is a shorter distance.

The main determining factor is the force from the bullet shot front gun really. As you can have two airplanes in the sky at the same distance, weight, gravitational force etc. But if the one plane has enough force to allow it to stay in the air longer it will descent slower.

Looks like it, I went & looked up the muzzle velocity for a pistol firing a 9mm parabellum bullet & when I got 320 m/s & realised that it would not shoot 320 metres I had to accept it was true, crazy eh ?

.
Go to google Earth or google maps and type the lat/long
29.9792458 N, 31 8' 3.11" E

This takes you to the King's Chamber in the Great Pyramid

299,792,458 m/sec is speed of Light.

This is a coincidence?
