    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    a friend of mine came to me with a physics question and I was embarrassed to not have an answer for him!

    Water is being poured into a container from height h. What is the change in temperature of the water? I don't even know what direction to look so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Hint: Consider the change in mechanical energy of the water. What happens to that energy?
