Textbook Problem

A 1.25-kg wooden block rests on a table over a large hole as in Figure P6.84. A 5.00-g bullet with an initial velocity vi is fired upward into the bottom of the block and remains in the block after the collision. The block and bullet rise to a maximum height of 22.0 cm. (a) Describe how you would find the initial velocity of the bullet using ideas you have learned in this topic, (b) Calculate the initial velocity of the bullet from the information provided.

(a)

To determine
Describe how the initial velocity of the bullet can be found.

Explanation

The relation between the speed of the block and bullet just after collision to the maximum height is found from the conservation of mechanical energy of the bullet-block-earth system from just after the impact until it reaches maximum height...

(b)

To determine
The initial velocity of the bullet.
