Question: The amount of internal energy needed to raise the temperature of .25 kg of water by 0.2 degrees Celsius is 209.3 J. How fast must a 0.25 kg baseball travel in order for its kinetic energy to equal this internal energy?
KE = (.5)(m)(v^2)
209.3 J = (.5)(.25kg)(v^2)
1674.4 = v^2 **square root both sides**
v = 40.92
^Is ANY of that correct? If not, can anyone help? Thanks so much

I don't see what 1/4 kg of water has to do with a baseball, but you did the problem correctly.
The specific heat of a baseball is different from that of water, and its mass is 1/7 kg, so what you have calculated in NOT the velocity needed to raise the baseball 0.2 degrees. It is an arbitrary number.

yes that is correct
