# Gravity Suspension

A wooden block of mass 0.9 kilograms is suspended from the ceiling of a room by thin wires.

A bullet of mass 0.1 kilograms moving with a horizontal velocity of $$100 ms^{-1}$$ strikes the block and sticks to it.

What is the height to which the block rises?

Details and assumptions:
To make the calculations easier take the acceleration due to gravity as $$10ms^{-2}$$
