A bullet of mass 0.012 kg and horizontal speed 70 m s−1s−1 strikes a block of wood of mass 0.4 kg and instantly comes to rest with respect to the block. The block is suspended from the ceiling by means of thin wires. Calculate the height to which the block rises. Also, estimate the amount of heat produced in the block.
A 6.0-kg block initially at rest is pulled to the right along a horizontal, surface having a coefficient of kinetic friction of 0.15, by a constant horizontal force of 12 N. Find the speed of the block after it has moved 3.0 m.
