How would you solve for the horizontal displacement of a 3.6 kg pendulum that hangs from a string 2.8 meters high, which is shot (and embeded) by a 0.018 kg bullet traveling at a velocity of 230 m/s?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I solved for the velocity of the objects together...

mv + mv = mv + mv

18(230) + 3.6(0) = 21.6v

v = 191.7 m/s

If the pendulum swings upward, how do i solve for the horizontal displacement?
