Unformatted text preview: a = 0.26 b = 0.27 c = 0.0047 4. From the exponential fit, what is the time constant of the thermometer? t = 1.27 Questions 1. How long should I wait to be sure that the thermometer temperature is the same as the room temperature? It takes about 11 minutes and 40 seconds. 2. Would I have to wait as long if I placed the hot thermometer in room temperature water? It takes about 11 minutes and 40 seconds Phys320 Lab Page 2 Experiment 1...
