# A 12.0-g bullet is fired horizontally into a 115-g wooden block that is initially at rest...

A 12.0-g bullet is fired horizontally into a 115-g wooden block that is initially at rest on a frictionless horizontal surface and connected to a spring having spring constant 146 N/m. The bullet becomes embedded in the block. If the bullet-block system compresses the spring by a maximum of 88.5 cm, what was the speed of the bullet at impact with the block?

A 35 g bullet is fired horizontally into a hanging wooden block (mass 1.7kg) as shown in (Figure 1). The bullet's initial speed is 300 m/s . The bullet becomes embedded in the block, which then swings upward some height. What is the maximum height to which the block rises? Instead of getting embedded in the block, the bullet passes completely through it, emerging on the other side with a speed of 100 m/s . How high does the block...
