```        A bullet of mass 7g is fired into a block of metal of weight 7kg.The block is free to move.Calculate the velocity of bullet if the velocity of block with bullet is 0.7m/s.
Is the answer 350.35m/s?If not then provide the correct one

```										Dear nitin,
By considering the conservation of momentum
m1*V1 = (m1+m2)*v
finding V1,after substuting the values
m1= 7g
m2=7000g
v=0.7 m/s
we get V1=700.7 m/s

All the best.

```										applying conservation of momentam
let intial velocity of bullet is Vb
intial momentam=MbVb               Mb is the mass of bullet
finally the whole system moves with velocity.7m/s
final momentam=(M+Mb).7
=4.9049
intitial momentam = final momettam
so  Vb =4.9049/.007
=700.7m/s

```										Mass of bullet = 7/1000 kg = 0.007 kg
Mass of block = 7 kg
Momentum is conserved in this case. So:
m1*u1 + m2*u2 = m1*v1 + m2*v2
m - mass [1 - bullet 2- block]
u - Initial velocity
v - final velocity
0.007*u1 = 4.9
u1 = 49/0.007
u1 = 7000 metre per sec.

```										Mass of bullet(m1) = 7 g = 0.007 kgMass of block(m2) = 7 kgSince the block is free to move and it is stationary, initial velocity (u2) = 0Final velocity of the bullet and block = 0.7 m/sInitial velocity of the bullet(u1)  = ?According to the law of conservation of momentum,m1u1 + m2u2 =(m1 + m2)v(Since the bullet and the block are combining to form a single mass)Putting the values of m1, m2, u1, u2 and v, we get0.007u1 + 7 × 0 =(0.007 + 7) × 0.7u1 = 7.007 × 0.7/0.007u1 = 700.7 m/sTherefore, the velocity of the bullet is 700.7 m/s.
