A 50 gram bullet moving with a velocity 10 m/s gets embedded into a 950 g stationary body . The loss in K.E. of the system will be

  • Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Physical, English -

    initial momentum = 0.050 *10 = .5

    final momentum = 1.00 * v = v

    so v = 0.5 m/s

    initial Ke = .5(.050)*100 = 2.5 Joules
    final Ke = .5(1.00)*.25 = .125 Joules
