a 15g bullet is fired horizontally into a block of wood with mass 2.5 kg and embedded in the block, Initially the block of wood hangs vertically and the impact the bullet just before the impact.

    What is your question? It this a ballistic pendulum situation?

    If so, apply conservation of momentum to the impact and conservation of energy to how far the pendulum swings.
