1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Bullet = 0.02 kg pendulum block = 2 kg bullet fired from (0m,0m) with velocity of (x m/s, 30 deg) pendulum block located (30m, 30deg) the maximum height reached by pendulum is 0.2 meter what is the value of X 2. Relevant equations I've tried several ways to approach this problem. the problem is the angle that it hits the bullet. 3. The attempt at a solution If the angle was out of the problem, i get an answer of 199.98 m/s/s. i used mgh=1/2mv^2 to get the velocity final, then worked backwards to plug that into the conservation of momentum equation: (0.02)(Vi) = (2.02)(1.98) = 199.98 this is about as far as i got without running into a wall. What i think is that the 199.98 is the X component, and using that I can solve for the resultant. But how?
