A 20.0 g bullet is fired horizontally into a 85 g wooden block that is initially at rest on a frictionless horizontal surface and connected to a spring having spring constant 156 N/m. The bullet becomes embedded in the block. The bullet block system compresses the spring by a maximum of 1.30 cm. (a) What is the velocity of the block once the bullet is imbedded?
