Problem 49

A bullet of mass 10 g strikes a ballistic pendulum of mass 2.0 kg. The center of mass of the pendulum rises a vertical distance of 12 cm. Assuming that the bullet remains embedded in the pendulum, calculate the bullets initial speed.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Simple Harmonic Motion Simple Harmonic Motion ● Period: time required for one cycle of periodic motion ● Frequency: number of oscillations per unit time ○ f= T ● A spring exerts a restoring force that is proportional to the displacement from equilibrium: ○ F=-kx ● A mass on a spring has a displacement as a function...
