## Homework Statement

A 15 g bullet is fired at 650 m/s into a 5 kg block that sits at the edge of a 65-cm-high table. The bullet embeds itself in the block and carries it off the table. How far from the point directly below the table's edge does the block land?

## Homework Equations

Impulse=m(delta v)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I really have no idea how to do this. Perhaps try to find the impulse from the bullet on the block? I know impulse=m(delta v), and I think you would use the bullet's mass (?), and the initial velocity is 650 m/s, but I'm not sure what the final velocity is? If the block starts to move then I wouldn't think it would be zero...

And then from there I have no idea where I would go :(
