A 10 g bullet is fired into a 5 kg wooden block initially at rest on the floor. The bullet lodges in the block and the block slides 10 cm across the floor before coming to rest. If the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the floor is 0.5 what was the speed of the bullet right before it hit the block
