🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Jammula's class at NEWARK.

Solution: A bullet with mass 6.00 x 10-3 kg is fired horizontally with speed V0 into a 1.20 kg wood block that is initially at rest on a horizontal surface. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the surface is 0.200, The bullet remains embedded in the block and after the collision with the bullet the block slides 0.120 m before coming to rest. What was the initial speed V0 of the bullet?
