**Calculate the most reasonable muzzle velocity of the ball bearing given:**

Mass of Bearing = .033kg

Mass of the Combination = .064kg

Length of Pendulum = .235m

Theta = 24 degrees

Mass of Bearing = .033kg

Mass of the Combination = .064kg

Length of Pendulum = .235m

Theta = 24 degrees

I was able to solve that and get Vmuzzle = 1.247 m/s^2

The second part of the question is what I'm having trouble with.

**If we were to devise an experiment to check that the above muzzle velocity is correct by firing the bearing straight upwards, what height would you expect the bearing to reach (most reasonable)?**

I'm pretty sure I can figure this out once I get a starting point. We covered this section in lab before lecture and I wasn't able to find a similar example looking ahead in the book to base a solution on.

Thanks!
