2 kg block of wood rests on a long tabletop. A 5g bullet moving horizontally with a speed of 150m/s is shot into the block and sticks into it. The block then slides 270cm along the table and stops

A) find the speed of the block ( answer: 0.374 m/s)

B)*** find the frictional force between block and table ( answer: )

2. Relevant equations

Ff = mew * Fn

J=p

Ft = mv

3. The attempt at a solution

after trying to find the solution from relevant momentum formulas, i am still completely stumped as to how i would find the frictional force between table and block

much appreciated if you read this over
