What is the velocity of the bullet of mass 10 g if it raises a mass of 5 kg when it hits it by 10 cm?
The mass of the bullet is 10 g. The mass that is hung is of 5 kg. When the bullet strikes the mass its height increases by 10 cm.
The potential energy of the mass changes by m*g*h = 5*(10/100)*9.8
This potential energy is imparted by the bullet...
