    Warming question

    What do I need to find a rate of change of? Why is the rate of warming negative? Is it the temperature of the water or the difference in temperature? Does the 10AM time make no difference? The final answer is supposed to be 1.22 degrees Celsius.

    Hey Stuck Man.

    Maybe you can post your DE model that you have learned in class to get some answers.

    The problem references Newton's law of cooling, which relates the rate of cooling to the difference in temperature. This gives you a differential equation.
