Energy transfer acceleration due to large energy difference.

  • #1
In a hypothetical example i have been thinking about a hot substance such as tea is sitting on the bench the air around the tea is colder than the tea so the process of thermal equilibrium is underway. If the tea is much hotter than an ordinary example does this increased difference in heat increase the rate of transfer by a rate proportional to the difference in temperature of the substances.And if so why do you suppose this would be?

You got linked to Newton's law of cooling a couple days ago.

Could you remind me when this was?

Doesn't matter in the end :) thank you for the help the good news is at least i managed to identify the same parameters newton did, that alone makes this mistake worth it for me.

Rediscovering things for yourself is not a mistake. It is a valuable part of learning. Well done!
