1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A pendulum of 9.99 kg is initially at rest, just skimming the floor below. A bullet of mass 0.01kg is fired at the bob. The bullet collides with the bob and embeds itself, after which the pendulum begins to move. The bullet-bob pendulum reaches the maximum vertical displacement of 4.60 cm. a) Calculate the velocity of the bullet just before the impact with the bob. (ANS: 949m/s) b) If a rubber bullet of mass 0.01kg was fired at the 9.99 bob with a speed of 949 m/s, and collided elastically with the bob, how high would the pendulum now rise? ANS b: 18.4 cm 2. Relevant equations P1 = P2 and E1 = E2 3. The attempt at a solution a) I think we are supposed to use the conservation of momentum and energy to answer this but I cannot do it. 26 minutes ago - 4 days left to answer.
