Use the equations below:
4) A wooden target of mass 2.00kg is suspended from a branch so that it swings freely. The target is hit by an arrow of mass 0.10kg travelling horizontally and the arrow embeds itself in the centre of the target. The target swings upwards, with its centre of mass rising by 0.60m. Use 9.81 as the acceleration for gravity.
A) Calculate the gain in gravitational energy by the target and arrow combination.
B) Calculate the velocity of the arrow and target immediately after the impact.
C) Calculate the velocity of the arrow immediately before the impact.
D) Determine if the collision is elastic or inelastic and why.
This one is a really tricky one so please write out in full, and no symbols please as i dont understand when you do that just full words
