Statement of a problem № 10264


A 30-g bullet is fired with a horizontal velocity of 450 m/s and becomes embedded in block B which has a mass of 3 kg. After the impact, block B slides on 30-kg carrier C until it impacts the end of the carrier. Knowing the impact between B and C is perfectly plastic and the coefficient of kinetic friction between B and C is 0.2, determine (a) The velocity of the bullet and B after the first impact, (b) The final velocity of the carrier.
