  1. Oct 6, 2008 #1
    newtons cooling law?????

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    uh for my lab report the problem is i have to solve for the constnat and the lnC??? look below


    2. Relevant equations
    teacher said something about LnT =Lne^-kt +LnC
    transposes into ==> LnT = -kt +LnC
    uh and i have the temperatures to do this.. but i dont know exactly what im trying to do

    3. The attempt at a solution
    seen as i dont know how to do it and im only in precalc i dont really get what im trying to do... as well can someone explain what this formula means?????

    Welcome to PF.

    Here is a link that discusses the properties of natural logarithms:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_logarithm

    Perhaps that will help you understand the transform.
