a 10.0-g bullet is fired into a stationary block of wood (m=5.00 lg). the bullet imbeds into the block. the speed of the bullet-plus-wood combination immediately after the collision is 0.600 m/s. what was the original speed of the bullet

2. Relevant equations

v= (m1)(v1a)/((m1)+(m2)

I=delat p

i am not 100% if you would even use that, or if that is what you need. i tryed it out and i will post it in about 10min. but the answer was given to me, and when i tested it out, i was wrong

3. The attempt at a solution

to be added soon.
