1) a bullet of mass 0.02 kg is fired into a block of wood of mass 1.5 kg resting on a horizontal table. The block moves offwith an initial speed of 8 m/s. Estimate the speed with the bullet strikes the block.

2) The bullet in question 1 is fired from a rifle of mass 2.5 kg. Assuming that the bullet leaves the barrel of the rifle with the speed calculated above, find the recoil speed of the rifle if it is free to move. In reality the rifle is held and for a certain person the rifle recoils a distance of 0.12 m. Determine the average force that the person exerts on the rifle?
