Converting Kinetic to Thermal Energy

  1. Dec 9, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A 3.0 g Buller with a specific heat of 0.0305 Cal/g°C moving at 180 m/s enters a bag of sand, and stops. By what amount does the temperature of the bullet change if all its Kinetic energy becomes thermal energy that is added to the bullet ?

    2. Relevant equations
    KE = 1/2 mv²

    3. The attempt at a solution
