Unformatted text preview: ct’s temperature T as a function of time t. With specific time and temperature information we can derive a particular solution to be used in solving a problem related to that given information. dT dT dT = K (T ! A ) " = K # dt " $ = K $ dt dt T!A T!A and " dT = K " dt T!A # ln T ! A = Kt + C, with C the constant of integration #e ln T ! A = e Kt +C , and with T $ A, we have T ! A = e Kt +C # T = e Kt +C + A In general, then, T = e Kt +C + A is the solution to the differential equation dT = K (T ! A) . dt Suppose, further, we know that the temperature of the object is 95° C, that the ambient temperature is 20° C, and that exactly 20 minutes after the object began to cool its temperature was 70° C. We have A = 20° C and (0,95) and (20,70) as known conditions. Wi...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
