Question

A 1.00 kg block is attached to a horizontal spring with spring constant 2500 N/m. The block is at rest on a frictionless surface. A 20 g bullet is fired into the block, in the face opposite to the spring and sticks.

What is the bullet’s speed if the subsequent oscillations have an amplitude of 10.0 cm?

(Express your answer in m/s as a pure number).

Answer:The speed of the bullet is = 27.36Explanation:Mass of the block (M) = 1 kg

Spring constant = 2500 N per meter

Mass of the bullet () = 20 gm = 0.2 kg

Amplitude A = 0.1 m

Now the final velocity of block when bullet is entered into the block is given by

4.56From conservation of momentum principalSince1.2 × 4.56 = 0.2

= 27.36Therefore the speed of the bullet is = 27.36
