A bullet whose mass M1= .04 kg traveling horizontallyhits a stationary block of mass M2= 2.4 kg on a horizontal surface. After the impact, the block, with embedded bullet, slides distance x= 5 meters to a stop. The coefficient of friction is f= .50 between block and surface. Find the velocity V1 of the bullet before impact.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com November 24, 2022, 11:36 am ad1c9bdddf
After the impact, conservation of energy is that the kinetic energy immediately after impact is transformed into heat generated during the slide. Equating ...
