A bullet with a mass of 4.0 g and a speed of 650 m/s is fired at a block of wood with a mass of 9.7×10−2 kg. The block rests on a frictionless surface, and is thin enough that the bullet passes completely through it. Immediately after the bullet exits the block, the speed of the block is 22 m/s.
What is the speed of the bullet when it exits the block?
