Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Rob on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 8:49pm.

A bullet of mass m=0.060 kg hits a 5.0 kg block with an initial speed of 225 m/s. The block is connected to a spring that is attached to a wall. The friction between the block and the table is negligible. Upon impact, the bullet bounces back from the box with a speed of 75 m/s.
A) Calculate the speed of the block right after the collision.
B) As a result of the collision, the spring compresses to a mazimum of 0.20m. Find the spring constant
--The equation to this is 1/2mv^2 = 1/2kx^2 right? I can't get the answer to this question without the answer to part A.
C) Find the inelastic energy loss during the collision.
