inelastic collision with the 20kg block. If the coefficient of kinetic friction between the blocks and the horizontal surface is 0.2, how far will they skid before coming to a stop? 9.56m 3) A bullet traveling horizontally at 300m/s hits a 1.2kg wooden block which is initially at rest. The block is sitting on a horizontal surface and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the surface is 0.3. The bullet goes through the wooden block and comes out the other side at 200m/s. After the bullet travels through the block, the block moves 0.lm before skidding to a stop. What is the mass of the bullet? 0.0092kg 4) A 1,200kg car is moving at 40m/s when the driver notices a cliff 100m ahead. The driver takes 0.4s to react and hit the brakes. The car skids with a coefficient of kinetic friction of 0.32 but unfortunately does not stop in time. Luckily there is 500kg concrete barrier to stop the car. The car crashes inelastically into the barrier and bounces back at 1.5m/s. If the cliff is 30m high, where will the concrete barrier land? 203.03m

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
