A bullet of mass 45 g is fired at a speed of 220 m/s into a 5.0-kg sandbag hanging from a string from the ceiling. The sandbag absorbs the bullet and begins to swing. To what maximum vertical height will it rise? Hint: Energy is not conserved as the bullet enters the bag but is conserved after the bullet comes to rest in the bag and the bag is swinging upward
