A bullet of mass m is moving horizontally with speed vo when it
hits a block of mass 100m that is at rest on a horizontal
frictionless table. The surface of the table is a height h above
the floor The bullet passes through the block and the block slides
off the table. Why is the distance the block lands from the table
less than it would be if the bullet had been imbeded in the block.
Do not use equations to justify the answer but terms such as
impulse and momentum and law of conservation of momentum
