35. The problem consists of two distinct parts: the completely inelastic collision (which is assumed to occur instantaneously, the bullet embedding itself in the block before the block moves through significant distance) followed by simple harmonic motion (of mass m+ Mattached to a spring of spring constant k).(a) Momentum conservation readily yields v´= mv/(m+ M). With m= 9.5 g, M= 5.4 kg andv= 630 m/s, we obtain '1.1m/s.v=(b) Since v´occurs at the equilibrium position, then
