# A classical mechanics problem by Aditya Khatavkar

Classical Mechanics Level pending

A bullet is fired at a speed of $$30\text{ m/s}$$. It embeds itself in a block with mass $$1\text{ kg}$$ hanging from a string. Mass of the bullet is $$20\text{ g}$$. Find the maximum height (in $$\text{m}$$) achieved by the block (with the bullet embedded).

Assume that $$g=10\text{ m/s}$$ and the initial height of the block is $$0\text{ m}$$.
