**drwls**, Sunday, January 29, 2012 at 9:36pmApply conservation of energy during the upward swing to compute the velocity of the pendulm with imbedded bullet.

V= sqrt(2gH)= 0.937 m/s

Then apply conservatuion of momentum to the bullet-imbedding process to compute the initial velocity of the bullet, v.

v*m = (M+m)V

m = bullet mass.

M = pendulum mass

Solve for v.
