Question

# A gun is fired at a target. At the moment of firing, the target is released and allowed to fall freely under gravity. Then the bullet :[Assume initial aim to be precise]

A
misses the target by passing above it
B
hits the target
C
misses the target by passing below it
D
may or may not hit the target

Solution

## The correct option is B hits the targetInitial velocity in downward direction of the target  $$u=0$$.Also initial velocity in downward direction of the bullet  $$u=0$$Thus distance covered by both in downward direction  $$S = ut+\dfrac{1}{2}gt^2$$$$\implies$$  $$S = \dfrac{1}{2}gt^2$$Thus both cover same distance in time $$t$$. Hence the bullet hits the target.Physics
