## Homework Statement

Hello i am doing a cooling experiment and i want to know the following:

y=28.49e^(-0.03890*800) +26.51 (note the 26.51) is not part of the exponential.

What is y? and I was wondering whether this would go ever go through the x axis?

Thanks people!

## Homework Equations

T=T(initial)*e^(-kt)+T(room)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have been putting the info into my calculator and i just cant seem to be able to graph it (TI-84) and from my knowledge of exponentials i don't think that an exponential like this can be below the x axis, but i may very well be wrong.

Thanks again
