(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Much of the energy of falling water in a waterfall is converted into heat.

If all the mechanical energy is converted into heat that stays in the water, how much of a rise in temperature occurs in a 100 m waterfall?

2. Relevant equations

q=mc(Tf-Ti)

Q=mc Delta T

Delta T = |Tf-Ti|

3. The attempt at a solution

i have no idea where to start or what equation to use all i see is the 100m can some one please lead me in the correct direction with the correct formula to use.
