**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

An 16.2 g rifle bullet traveling 240 m/s buries itself in a 3.54 kg pendulum hanging on a 2.90 m long string, which makes the pendulum swing upward in an arc. Determine the horizontal component of the pendulum's displacement.

**2. Relevant equations**

I used the Y center of mass equation which is:

Ycm= m1y1+m2y2/m1+m2 but i got 2.9

**3. The attempt at a solution**

Im stuck and dont know what else to do
