Qualitative Behavior of Differential Equations More Examples Maple - Direction Fields Solution of Linear Growth and Decay Models Mathematical Modeling Newton’s Law of Cooling Murder Investigation Linear Differential Equation Murder Example 2 Solution: From the model for Newton’s Law of Cooling and the information that is given, if we set t = 0 to be 8:30 am, then we solve the initial value problem dT dt = - k ( T ( t ) - 22) with T (0) = 30 Make a change of variables z ( t ) = T ( t ) - 22 Then z 0 ( t ) = T 0 ( t ), so the differential equation above becomes dz dt = - kz ( t ) , with z (0) = T (0) - 22 = 8 This is the radioactive decay problem that we solved The solution is z ( t ) = 8 e - kt Joseph M.

### What students are saying

• 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.
