Marissa drags a 15 kg duffel bag 18 m across the gym floor. If the coefficient of kinetic friction between the floor and bag is 0.15, how much thermal energy does Marissa create? It says I'm look for deltaE_Th. I dont know what that means or how to figure out the problem.

A car is traveling at 14 m/s. How fast would the car need to go to double its kinetic energy? By what factor does the car's kinetic energy increase if its speed is doubled to 28 m/s? We only get 3 chances and I'm on my last one before I get the question wrong, help?
