A bullet with a mass of 28g and travelling at 300m\s strikes a body with a mass of 14kg and which can move freely. The bullet remains in the body. At What velocity will the body start to move?

Use the fact that the total forward momentum is conserved.
0.028* 300 = 14.028* V
Solve for final velocity, V.
