Posted by Richard on Thursday, January 15, 2009 at 11:21pm.

A small block of mass 5 kg initially rests on a track at the bottom of a circular, vertical loop-the-loop, which has a radius of 0.8 m. The surface contact between the block and the loop is frictionless. A bullet of mass 0.7 kg strikes the block horizontally with initial speed 120 m/s and remains embedded in the block as the block and bullet circle the loop.

(a) Speed of block&bullet immediately after impact
(b) Kinetic Energy of block&bullet when they get midway to the top of the loop
(c) Minimum initial speed Vmin of bullet if block&bullet are to successfully execute a complete circuit of the loop

(a) CONSERVATION OF MOMENTUM
(b) CONSERVATION OF ENERGY
(c) NOT SURE
