How to Calculate temperature in this case??

If a metal, say tin is dragged on a surface having coefficient of friction as u,
with a velocity of 60kph, then what will be the temperature generated due to
friction at the surface of tin.
I am in urgent need of this answer.
it will be very kind of you if you send me this answer by Email.

Friction does not generate temperature.Friction generates heat.Heat is absorbed by the body under friction.The heat generated is equal to the work consumed.Temperature is just a result of the accumulated heat.

Temperature is not easily defined, but is actually a measure of molecular activity, which is not very useful. Normally on a scientific basis temperature is discussed using the equality of temperature.

Actually there are some missing variables to answer the problem : the mass of the metal and its specific heat capacity.
I believe it could then be solved.

Also needed is the amount of time the tin is dragged. The longer its dragged the more work is done and the more heat generated.
