A 13g bullet traveling 330 m/s penetrates a 2.0 kg Block of wood and emerges going 270 m/s . If the block is stationary on a frictionless surface when hit how fast does it move after the bullet emerges?

  1. momentum before = momentum after

    momentum before = .013 * 330

    momentum after = .013 * 270 + 2 v


    2 v = .013 (330 - 270)
