Unformatted text preview: What is the initial speed of the bullet? 0.8 m 1.2 m 10 g 1.3 kg Solution: Momentum conservation gives: m b v b = (mb+m bl )v or b b m v )v m (m bl b + = Need to find from kinetic equations. Find time of flight from: ∆ y = ½ gt 2 or g y t ∆ = 2 Use this to get the velocity v : v = x/t = g y x ∆ ∆ 2 = 1.6 m/s Finally v b = 0.01 1.6 1.3) (0.01 + = 211 m/s...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
