9.41. Model: This is a two-part problem. First, we have an inelastic collision between the wood block and the bullet. The bullet and the wood block are an isolated system. Since any external force acting during the collision is not going to be significant (the impulse approximation), the momentum of the system will be conserved. The second part involves the dynamics of the block bullet + sliding on the wood table. We treat the block and the bullet as particles.
