In Reply to: Question. How do you define a rebound???? posted by don on December 08, 2001 at 11:39:22:
the law of conservation of momentum. As an example: A loaded rifle has a momentum of zero. But when you pull the trigger lots of hot gases will drive the bullet forwards. The bullet and hot gases have a momentum in the forward direction, and since the total momentum must remain zero, the rifle gets an equal momentum in the backward direction, and hence hits you on the shoulder. This is called the REBOUND of firing a riffle.
I hope this helps ;-)
PS: IMHO rebound has nothing to do with CH, unless you use a gun to end it.
