Question

A bullet of mass 6.00 gg is fired horizontally into a wooden block of mass 1.20 kgkg resting on a horizontal surface. The coefficient of kinetic friction between block and surface is 0.190. The bullet remains embedded in the block, which is observed to slide a distance 0.270 mm along the surface before stopping.
(a) What was teh initial speed of the bullet?(b) What kind of collision took place between the bullet and the block? Explain your answer comparing the values of the kinetic energy before and after the collision.(c) Calculate the impulse of the block from the moment just after the impact to his final position. Analyze the result.
