1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A bullet of mass m traveling horizontally at a very high speed v embeds itself in a block of mass M that is sitting at rest on a nearly frictionless surface. What is the speed of the block after the bullet embeds itself in the block? 2. Relevant equations momentum=(mass)(velocity) 3. The attempt at a solution momentum (p) of the bullet = mv. But I don't know how to figure out the speed of the block..since momentum is conserved, would it just be v=p/m?
