A ballistic pendulum consisting of a heavy bob of mass M suspended form a fixed point by a thread of length l is at rest. A bullet of mass m and traveling horizontally at a speed v hits the bob and imbeds itself an the bob. As a result, the pendulum is deflected through a amaximum angle θ from the vertical. Show that

v = (M+m)/m √(2gl(1-cos〖θ)〗 )

where g is the acceleration du to gravity ?
