1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A bullet of mass m = 17.6 g traveling horizontally at speed vo = 565 m/s strikes a block of mass M = 678 g sitting on a frictionless, horizontal table. This time, however, it comes out the other side of the block at speed v = 524 m/s. Calculate J, the magnitude of the impulse exerted by the bullet on the block. 2. Relevant equations Hm... Impulse = Momentum = Ft = mv_f² - mv_i² 3. The attempt at a solution I think that the impulse is same as the momentum. I think that is... Impulse = (M + m)v_f² - mv_i² But it seems like I'm on the wrong path.
