Question

**Cooling:**

**The body of an apparent victim of a crime is discovered
by detectives at 9 AM, at which time the body temperature was
measured to be 88°. Two hours later the temperature was 82°. Using
Newton’s Law of Cooling, determine the time of death if the room
temperature was a constant 75****°.**

Answer #1

where:

k: the constant of proportionality

T: the temperature of the surrounding enviroment (constant)

Ts: the temperature of the object at time t

T(0)= 88

T(1)=82

to determine C and, we substitute the initial conditions to arrive at the system of equations

the first equation tells us , so the second equation becomes:

thus,

the solution is:

assuming the boby temperature was last 98.6

that is, the ime of death was approximately 58 minutes before 9:00, or 8:02

This exercise uses Newton's Law of Cooling.
Newton's Law of Cooling is used in homicide investigations to
determine the time of death. The normal body temperature is 98.6°F.
Immediately following death, the body begins to cool. It has been
determined experimentally that the constant in Newton's Law of
Cooling is approximately k = 0.1947, assuming time is
measured in hours. Suppose that the temperature of the surroundings
is 55°F.

If the temperature difference DT between an object and
it surroundings is not too great, the rate of cooling or warming
obeys Newton’s Law of Cooling,
d(DT)/dt = – K DT
where K is a constant. (a) Why is there a
minus sign on the right-hand side of the equation? (b) On
what factors does K depend and what are its units?
(c) It DTo is the temperature difference
at time to, what is the temperature difference at
time t...

A detective is called to the scene of a crime where a dead body
has just been found. She arrives on the scene at 10:23PM and begins
her investigation. Immediately, the temperature of the body is
taken and found to be 80℉. The detective checks the thermostat and
finds that the room has been kept at a constant 68℉. After the
evidence from the crime scene is collected, the temperature of the
body is taken once more exactly one hour...

In
room Q-666 a student, at 8:00 AM, finds the murdered body of Mr.
Jones. The student takes the temperature of the body: 90 F. Two
hours later, the police determines the new temperature: 80 F. The
temperature of the room is constant 70 F. The normal temperature of
the living human being is 98.6 F. Determine the time approximate
death

A body was found in the basement of the Underwater Basket
Weaving Building at 12:00 noon today, where the temperature is a
steady 65 degrees Fahrenheit. When found, the core temperature was
91.1 degrees Fahrenheit. Two hours later, at 2:00 PM, the core
temperature had fallen to 88.4. Assuming that the body
temperature was 98.6 at the time of death, use Newton's law of
cooling to find the time of death. ROUND TO 2 DECIMAL PLACES.
The time of death...

When a murder is committed, the body, originally at 37 degree
Celsius, cools according to Newton’s Law of Cooling. Suppose that
after two hours the temperature is 35 degree Celsius, and that the
temperature of the surrounding air is constant at 20 degree
Celsius. Find the temperature, H, of the body as a function of t,
the time in hours since the murder was committed.

Use Newton's law of cooling model to partially solve a murder
mystery. At 3:00 p.m. a deceased body is found. Its temperature is
70+ F. An hour later the body temperature has decreased to 60+ .
It's been a winter inversion in SLC, with constant ambient
temperature 30+ . Assuming the Newton's law model, estimate the
time of death

police arrive at a murder scene at 1:30 am and immediately
record the body's temperature which was 93 degrees Fahrenheit. at
2:00 am, after thoroughly inspecting and fingerprinting the area,
they again took the temperature of the body which had dropped to 83
degrees F. the temperature of the crime scene has remained at a
constant 70 degrees F. Determine when the person was murdered.
(assume that the victim was healthy at the time of death. that is,
assume that...

In 1701, Issac Newton proved his Law of Cooling: T(t)
=Aekt +Ta, which is an exponential model that
relates the temperature of an object T as a function of
time t (we will use minutes) that is placed in an
environment with ambient temperature Ta.
Suppose a cup of hot coffee is served at 160◦F and placed in a
room with an ambient temperature 75◦. After 5 minutes, the cup of
coffee has a temperature of 131◦F.
a) Create a...

Newton’s Law of Cooling tells us that the time rate of chnge in
temperature T(t) of a body immersed in a medium of constant
temperature A is proportional to the difference A − T.The DE
modeling this is dT dt = k(A − T). A cup of hot chocolate is
initially 170◦ F and is left in a room with an ambient temperature
of 70◦ F. Suppose that at time t = 0 it is cooling at a rate of...
