A worker drives a 0.509 kg spike into a rail tie
with a 2.08 kg sledgehammer. The hammer
hits the spike with a speed of 63.3 m/s.
If one fifth of the hammer’s kinetic energy
is converted to the internal energy of the hammer and spike, how much does the total internal energy increase?
Answer in units of J
