Question

A bullet of mass m1 = 10.00 g that has a velocity of v1 in the horizontal direction hits and gets fully stuck inside a block of mass m2 of 0.300 kg. That mass m2 is at the edge of a table 1.00 m above the level of the floor. After the bullet gets stuck at the block, that block does a projectile motion and lands 1.50 m in the horizontal direction to the right as shown in the figure. Ignoring air drag calculate the initial speed of the bullet.
