Part A = ((m+M)/m)(sqrt(2gL(1-cos(θ))))
Part B = 0.852 Click to use the calculator/solver for this part of the problem

In a ballistic pendulum an object of mass m is fired with an initial speed v0 at a pendulum bob.
Find an expression for v0, the initial speed of the fired object.
An experiment is done to compare the initial speed of bullets fired from different handguns: find the ratio of the initial speed of the 9 mm bullet to the speed of the .44-caliber bullet, v0,9/v0,44
