When a lead bullet hits a solid target at high speed, its entire kinetic energy is converted into heat. For simplicity, assume that all the heat is concentrated in the bullet rather than the target.
If the bullet's initial temp. is 20` C, how fast should it be moving before the collision in order to reach the lead's melting temp 327.3` C and have 53% of its mass melted after the collision? Lead's specific heat is 128 J/kg x K and it's latent heat of fusion is 24500 J/kg.

answers is in m/s?????
