# A classical mechanics problem by Aditya Khatavkar

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 \(0\text{ m} \).
