A .010-kg bullet traveling horizontally at 400.0 m/s strikes a 4.0-kg block of wood sitting at the edge of a table. The bullet is lodged into the wood. If the table height is 1.2 m, how far from the table does the block hit the floor?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 9:05 pm ad1c9bdddf
The kinetic energy of the bullet when it hits the block = (1/2)mv^2 = (1/2)(0.010)(400^2)
= 800 J. This energy is transferred to the block and ...
