We think of this as having two parts: the first is the collision itself – where the bullet passes through the block so quickly that the block has not had time to move through any distance yet – and then the subsequent “leap” of the block into the air (up to height h measured from its initial position). The first part involves momentum conservation (with +y upward): !
( 0.01kg )(1000 m s ) = ( 5.0 kg ) v + ( 0.01kg )( 400 m s ) !
which yields v = 1.2 m s . The second part involves either the free fall e...
