Question

A 3.50-g copper coin at 17.5°C drops 40.0 m to the ground.

(a) Assuming 55.0% of the change in gravitational potential energy of the coin–Earth system goes into increasing the internal energy of the coin, determine the coin's final temperature.
 °C

(b) Does the result depend on the mass of the coin?
YesNo
