Question
4.
A bullet (
v = 60 m/sec,
m = 50 gram) is fired into an ice
block (M=3 KG) resting on ice
considered
frictionless
. The bullet is imbedded in ice block and they move together on ice.
a.
Find the common velocity they move together.
b.
Find the initial kinetic energy of the system.
c.
Find the final kinetic energy of the sys
tem.
d.
Find the percent energy loss.

Step 1

Given information:

Mass of the bullet (m) = 50 g = 0.05 kg

Velocity of the bullet (u­1) = 60 m/s

Mass of the ice (M) = 3 kg

Initial velocity of ice (u2) = 0 m/s

Final velocity of the system if the bullet is imbedded into the ice (v) =?

Step 2

Part a:

This is an inelastic collision, here only the momentum is conserved i.e.

Step 3

Part b:

Initial kinetic ener...
