Exponential Physics: The Cooling of Hot Coffee

Physics / April 23, 2015 / No Comments /
This is a report on a practical lab study utilizing exponential patterns and equations. The finite study investigates the temperature T of hot coffee, and the time t that the coffee has cooled.

“It was determined that this relationship is exponential and that the temperature of coffee at a given time can be found by using the equation

T = T0e(-0.0115)t.

This formal report contains a full theoretical background with all derived equations, as well as data tables and graphs to analyze and expound upon all pertinent data.”
