A 10.0g bullet is fired with a speed of 500m/s into a pendulum block of mass 5.00kg, suspended from a cord 0.600m long. Calculate: (a)the vertical height through which the pendulum rises.
(b) the initial kinetic energy of the bullet. (c) the kinetic energy of the bullet and the pendulum immediately after the bullet becomes embedded in the pendulum.

  • mambane -

    height is 0.05m

  • mambane -

    a=0.05m

    b=500J

    c=600J
