My problem is as follows "A 3 kg brick is dropped from a height of 1.0 m onto a nail which is vertically stuck in a plank of wood. If the nail doesn't move in much, how much heat is produced in the system when the brick hits and sticks onto the top of the nail." I know PE is 29.4J and this will convert to KE by the time it hits the nail but where does "heat" come into the picture?

    The KE is converted to heat by friction on impact.

    Thanks so much.
