A 22-g bullet traveling 240 m/s penetrates a 1.9 kg block of
wood and emerges going 140 m/s .
If the block is stationary on a frictionless surface when hit,
how fast does it move after the bullet emerges?

A 28-g rifle bullet traveling 240 m/s embeds itself in a 3.4-kg
pendulum hanging on a 2.5-m-long string, which makes the pendulum
swing upward in an arc.
A) Determine the vertical component of the pendulum's
maximum displacement.
B) Determine the horizontal component of the pendulum's maximum
displacement.

A 2.03-g lead bullet traveling at 508 m/s strikes a target,
converting its kinetic energy into thermal energy. Its initial
temperature is 40.0°C. The specific heat is 128 J/(kg · °C), latent
heat of fusion is 24.5 kJ/kg, and the melting point of lead is
327°C.
(a) Find the available kinetic energy of the bullet.
J
(b) Find the heat required to melt the bullet.

A bullet is moving at a velocity of 50 m/s when it embeds into a
lump of moist clay. The bullet penetrates a distance of 10 m before
stop. Determine the acceleration of the bullet as it moves through
the clay. Hint: the bullet will stop!

A 8.00 g bullet traveling at 515 m/s embeds itself in a 1.57 kg
wooden block at rest on a frictionless surface. The block is
attached to a spring with k = 82.0 N/m.
Part A) Find the period.
Part B) Find the amplitude of the subsequent simple harmonic
motion.
Part C) Find the total energy of the bullet + block + spring
system before the bullet enters the block.
Part D) Find the total energy of the bullet +...

A 28-g rifle bullet traveling 190 m/s embeds itself in a 3.9-kg
pendulum hanging on a 2.6-m-long string, which makes the pendulum
swing upward in an arc. Determine the horizontal component of the
pendulum's maximum displacement.

A 50 gram lead bullet is fired at 450 m/s to a 3 kg block of
copper and penetrates the block. Assuming that the bullet does not
leave the block, if the initial temperature of the bullet is 60°C
and the block is originally at 30°C,
a) Find the final temperature of the bullet-block system.
(Assume that the system is isolated and there is no heat escaping
the system)
b) Is the dissipated energy (due to the collision) enough to...

A firearms company is testing a new model of rifle by firing a
7.50-g lead bullet into a block of wood having a mass of 17.5 kg.
The bullet embeds into the block and the collision generates heat.
As a consequence, the temperature rises by 0.040°C, as measured
with a high-precision thermometer. Assuming that all the kinetic
energy of the bullet goes into heating the system, what is the
bullet’s speed when it enters the block? The initial temperatures
of...

A 29-g rifle bullet traveling 220 m/s embeds itself in a 3.0-kg
pendulum hanging on a 2.7-m-long string, which makes the pendulum
swing upward in an arc. (Figure 1)
A) Determine the vertical component of the pendulum's maximum
displacement.
B) Determine the horizontal component of the pendulum's maximum
displacement.

A lead bullet of mass 3.43 g and temperature 28.6C traveling at
an unknown speed gets embedded in a block of ice of temperature
00C. Calculate the initial speed of the bullet if 0.500 g of ice
melts. Assume that the entire kinetic energy of the bullet is
converted into heat, that is transferred to the ice. Also, do not
forget that the bullet cools down from 28.6C to 0C. Express your
answer in m/s
