Hi, I really need help on the following questions and would appreciate it if someone could ASAP!!! Thank you!!!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) a bullet of massmis moving horizontally with speedvwhen it hits a block of mass 100m that is at rest on a horizontal frictionless table. The surface of the table is a heighthabove the floor. After the impact the bullet and the block slide off the table and hit the floor a distancexfrom the edge of the table.

a) What is the speed of the block as it leaves the table?

b) What is the change in kinetic energy of the bullet-block system during impact?

c) What is the distancex?

Suppose the bullet passes through the block instead of remaining in it.

d) State whether the time required for the block to reach the floor from the edge of the table would now be greater, less, or the same. Justify your answer.

e)State whether the distancexfor the block would now be greater, less or the same. Justify your answer.

THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH!!!! I really needed help.
