(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. A 25.0g bullet strikes a .600kg block attached to a fixed horizontal spring whose spring constant is 6.70x10^3 and sets it into vibration with an amplitude of 21.5cm. What is the speed of the bullet before impact if the two objects move together after impact?

2. V=A[tex]\sqrt{k/m}[/tex]

3. I used the equation above, adding the masses together (.625kg). I got the velocity to be 22.26m/s... but now i can't figure out how to get the speed of the bullet.

The answer in the book says that the speed of the bullet is 557m/s.
