A 670 kg meteorite happens to be composed of aluminum. When it is far from the Earth, its temperature is -15°C and it moves with a speed of 14.0 km/s relative to the Earth. As it crashes into the planet, assume that the resulting additional internal energy is shared equally between the meteor and the planet, and that all the material of the meteor rises momentarily to the same final temperature. Find this temperature. Assume that the specific heat of liquid and of gaseous aluminum is 1182 J/kg°C.
