A bullet with a mass of 28g and travelling at 300m\s strikes a body with a mass of 14kg and which can move freely. The bullet remains in the body. At What velocity will the body start to move?

  • Engineering Science -

    Use the fact that the total forward momentum is conserved.
    0.028* 300 = 14.028* V
    Solve for final velocity, V.
