An iron wire has a resistance of 12 Ohms at 20.0 C and a mass of 1.3 x 10 ^-3 kg. A current of 0.10 A is sent through the wire for one minute and causes the wire to become hot. Assuming that only 80 % of the electrical energy is dissipated in the wire and remains there, find teh final temperature of the wire. Note that the specific heat capacity of iron is 452 J/Kg C
