A ball of mass 0.075 kg is fired horizontally into a ballistic pendulum. The pendulum mass is 0.350 kg. The ball is caught in the pendulum, and the centerof mass of the system rises a vertical distance of 0.145 m in the earth's gravitational field. What was the original speed of the ball? Assume g=9.80 m/s^2. How much kinetic energy was lost in the collision?
