(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); HELP!!!Impulse problem

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

A bullet of mass m and speed v passes through a pendulum bob of large mass M and emerges with speed v/2. the bob is at the end of a sting of length l.What impulse is delivered to the bob by the bullet in this case.

3. The attempt at a solution

impulse=momentum change=P_f-P_i

therefore,

impulse=(m(v/2)+Mv')-mv

However, I don't think it is the final answer for this question, but I don't really know how to continue... can anyone help me with this question? thank you very much.
