1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A 5g bullet is fired horizontally into a 0.50kg block of wood resting on a frictionless table. The block, which is attached to a horizontal spring, retains the bullet and moves forward, compressing the spring. The block-bullet system goes into SHM with a frequency of 9Hz and amplitude of 15cm.
A) Determine the speed of the bullet
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
I wasn't sure how to even approach this but I think I need to determine the spring constant k using a form of T=2π(m/k).5.
Then plug that into:
I have NO IDEA if I am right or not. Anyone want to confirm or deny?
