Water is boiled in a cup and cooled in a room that is at 27°C. Assume that Newton's Law of Cooling is satisfied: the rate of change of the water temperature at any time is proportional to the difference between the water temperature and the ambient temperature. Water boils at 100°C. We take the temperature of the water after 3 minutes and find that it is 87°C. (a) Set up and solve an Initial Value Problem to express the temperature of water as a function of time. (b) Sketch a graph of this function. (c) Calculate when the temperature of the water reaches 50°C.
