Online conversion can convert joules to degrees Celsius for me, but I can't find any explanation, on their site or anywhere else, of how to convert it. I need to know a formula or calculation, as I'm not going to be able to go to this site every time I need to do something like this. I'm trying to figure out how much heat would be generated by a 1 ton car (or any object really), moving at 60 mph, coming to a complete stop. I've worked out it would have a kinetic energy of approx. 13624.56 joules, and onlineconversion.com tells me that this is approx. 7 degrees Celsius.

But how do I show that 13624.56 joules = 7 degrees Celsius?
