**drwls**, Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 10:28pmUse conservation of linear momentum to get the speed of the block with the bullet inside. Call that speed Vx

m*Vb = (M + m) Vx

M - block mass

m = bullet mass

Vb = bullet speed

Solve for Vx

Use the H = 10 m height of the building to compute the time the block takes to fall. Call that time T.

H = (g/2)T^2

Solve for T

The distance that the block lands away from the cliff if Vx * T
