(It should be noted that these equations are all based on the simplifying assumption that the maximum velocity of free recoil is transferred instantaneously to the bolt. A more thorough analysis of the actual occurrences during the progress of the propellant explosion is given in the following description of the methods used for developing the theoretical time-travel and time-velocity curves.)

On the basis of equation 1-12, the rate of fire for the gun of the example is:

30 y
