The shooter

The shooter heard the bullet's impact on the target one second after the shot. The bullet was moving at an average speed of 500 m/s. Calculate with the speed of sound of 340 m/s. Determine the distance of the target.

Correct answer:

x =  202.381 m

Step-by-step explanation:

t=1 s v1=500 m/s v2=340 m/s  t1+t2 = t  x/v1+x/v2=t x/500+x/340=1  42x=8500  x=428500=202.38095238  x=214250202.380952=202.381 m
