A 1.0kg metal head of a geology hammer strikes a solid rock with a velocity of 5.0m/s. Assuming all the energy is retained by the hammer head, how much will its temperature increase?

1/2 m b^2= m*specificheatSteel*deltatemp
notice mass divide out. look up the specific heat constant, compute deltatemp

I'm still confused.....can you please show me how to set this up?
