A lead bullet weighing 18.0g and travelling at 500 m//s is embedded in a wooden block of 1.0kg. If both the bullet and the block were initially at 25.0^(@)C, what is the final temperature of the block containing bullet? Assume no temperature loss to the surrounding. (Heat capacity of wood = 0.5 kcal kg^(-1) K^(-1), heat capacity of lead = 0.030 kcal kg^(-1) K^(-1))
