An aluminum block slides along a horizontal surface. The block has an initial speed of 11.6 m/s and an initial temperature of 10.7°C. The block eventually slides to rest due to friction. Assuming all the initial kinetic energy is converted to heat energy and all this energy stays in the block, what is the final temperature of the block?
