Unformatted text preview: temperature of the water in each cup. Every 5 seconds record the temperature of each cup, up to 60 seconds. Use this data to construct 2 Graphs. One with ln( Δ T ) vs. t the other just ( Δ T ) vs. the slope of the first graph is negative and this is the constant in Newton’s law of Cooling. The other graph is a best fit and the tangent to the curve gives an id of the constant. Conclusion Looking at our data I feel we found the best data from the instruments that we used. I still feel that we should have had a fan blowing on the cups to disperse the warm air around the cups that were insulating them. Either way we did find slopes to the natural log of the change in Temp graph and the other graph, and found these were not super close but close enough....
