Newton's law of cooling indicates that the temperature of a warm object will decrease exponentially withtime and will approach the temperature of the surrounding air. The temperature T(t) is modeled byT(t) = T+ (T- T)e. In this model, Trepresents the temperature of the surrounding air, Trepresents theinitial temperature of the object and tis the time after the object starts cooling. The value of kis the coolingrate and is a constant related to the physical properties of the object. A cake comes out of the oven at 335°F and is placed on a cooling rack in a 70°F kitchen. After checking thetemperature several minutes later, it is determined that the cooling rate kis 0.050. Write a function thatmodels the temperature T(t) (in °F) of the cake tminutes after being removed from the oven. ) = 70 + 265a0aSelect one:a. T(t) = 70 + 335b. T(t) = 335 + 70c. T(t) = 70 + 265d.
