Matchlock C. Flintlock B. Wheellock D. Percussion Ans. D Remember the following definition of terms: 1. Ballistics - The science of mechanics that deals with the flight,behavior and effects of projectiles. 2. Forensic Ballistics - It involves the analysis of bullet impacts to determine information of use to a court or other part of the legal system. 3. Ballistic Fingerprinting - It involves analyzing firearm,ammunition,and toolmark evidence in order to establish whether a certain firearm or tool was used in the commission of crime. 4. Ballistic Missile - It is a missile guided only during the relative brief

initial powered phase of flight whose course is subsequently governed by the laws of classical mechanics. 5. Internal Ballistic - The study of the processes originally accelerating the projectile. 6. External Ballistic - The study of the passage of the projectile through a medium. 7. Transition Ballistics - The study of the projectiles behavior when it leaves the barrel and the pressure behind the projectile is equalized. 8. Cartridge - It is also called a round. 9. Matchlock - Employed a burning wick on a spring that was locked back and released into a pan of powder upon pulling a trigger. 10. Percussion - Consists of a hammer that was locked and when released, struck a cup containing a volatile primer that ignited on impact sending a flame through a small tube into the barrel chamber.
