Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Cass on Wednesday, January 16, 2013 at 6:03pm.

A 40 gram bullet is fired horizontally from a gun with a momentum of 2.8 (kg*m/s) and embeds itself into a 300 gram block of wood initially at rest on a wooden horizontal surface. After this collision the wood block slides 15 meters before falling off a table with a height of 2m. (neglect air resistance)
-Draw a diagram of this scenario and label the parts with the different physics concepts in play.
-Determine the horizontal distance travelled by the block after falling off the table.
-What is the final velocity of the block.
-At what angle does the block hit the ground? (relative to the horizontal)
-How much time is elapsed between the bullet hitting the block and the block striking the ground?
