In a ballistics lab, a 10gram bullet is shot into a 2kg block of wood suspended by a 1meter rope from the ceiling. During the collision, the bullet is embedded in the block. After the collision, the blockbullet swing up 53º. You may use g = 10 m/sec^{2}.
Refer to the following information for the next six questions.
A neutron (m = 1.67 x 10^{27} kg) moving with speed 1 m/sec, collides with a stationary particle of unknown mass. The neutron undergoes a perfectly elastic collision and rebounds with a speed of 0.85 m/sec.

A 20gram bullet is fired at a 3500gram block which is initially at rest on a table. The bullet embeds in the block resulting in the block sliding 1.75 meters before coming to a stop. The coefficient of friction between the block and the table's surface is µ = 0.40. You may g = 10 m/sec^{2}.
Refer to the following information for the next eleven questions.
As shown in the diagrams provided below, a ball of mass 1 kg is originally moving along the xaxis with a velocity of 10 m/sec towards the origin. As it approaches the origin, it delivers a glancing blow to a stationary 4kg mass. After the collision, the 1kg ball continues traveling towards the left, into the second quadrant, at a reduced speed of 5 m/sec at an angle of 37º above the negative xaxis.
