Homework Help: physics

Posted by katie on Monday, April 23, 2012 at 6:16pm.

The driver of a 1,450kg car, whose iron brake calipers mass is 3kg endures a brain malfuction at the top of a 20 degree parking ramp 20 meters long. It approaches the ramp going 20m/s and the driver recovers just as the car reaches the bottom. If the driver captures all the energy of this catastrophe in his car's calipers, then how much hotter do they become.
