A 0.25 kg skeet (clay target) is fired at an angle of 30 degrees to the horizon with a speed of 25 m/s. When it reaches the maximum height, it is hit from below by a 15 g pellet travelling upward at a speed of 200 m/s. The pellet is embedded in the skeet. (a) How much higher did the skeet go up? (b) How much extra distance does the skeet travel because of the collision?
