A 50.0g Bullet traveling horizontally at 200.0 m/s embeds itself in a much more massive wooden block initially at rest on a horizontal surface (μ=0.10) The block then slides 1.2m toward an ideal spring and collides with it. The block compresses the spring (k=600.0 N/m) a maximum of 20.0 cm. Calculate the mass of the block of wood.
