**bobpursley**, Tuesday, March 1, 2011 at 1:39pmyou can only use conservation of momentum on the collision

Momentumbullet=momentumbullet/pendulum

.0032*Vi=3.6032*Vf

Now you can consider energy after the collision

1/2 (3.6032)Vf^2=(3.6032)*9.8*.13

in the second equation, solve for Vf, then put it in the first equation, and solve for Vi.
