Bobpursely would you mind looking at my physics post. Just provide me with the formulas.

    A 5kg bullet fired from a gun at 725m/s becomes embedded in a .50kg block of wood that is free to move along a surface and the coefficient of friction .355 between the surface and block of wood. find the distance it slides acroos the table.

  • Bobpursely -

    Use conservation of momentum to get the initial velocity of the block with imbedded bullet.

    Then set the initial kinetic energy of block & bullet equal to the work done against friction, and solve for trhe sliding distance.

    Check to make sure the bullet weight is really 5 kg. That is more like a cannonball. I suspect it is really 5 g.

    Thank you, drwls!
