    Don't get this particle motion problem?

    Hey this is from the 2003 Calculus AB AP Exam.

    A pizza heated to a temp of 350 degrees F, is take out of an oven nad placed in a 75 degree F room at time t=0 minutes. The temperature of the pizza is changing at a rate of -110e^(-0.4t) degrees F/min. To the nearest degree, what's the temperature of the pizza at time t=5 minutes?

    The integral of \frac{F}{m} is going to give you \frac{Fm}{m} or F. Now integrate the function it gave you, and figure out c using the additional information.

    Just a hint, sometimes they will give you some useless information to throw you off.

    How is this, as the thread title says, a particle motion problem?
