Suppose that the temperature of a pan of warm water obeys Newton's law of cooling. The water (47 degrees Celsius) was put in a room and 10 minutes later the water's temperature was 40 degrees Celsius. After another 10 minutes, the temperature of the water was 34 degrees Celsius. Find the room's temperature.
dH/dt = -k(H-Hs)
Hs is the room's temperature
H0 is the initial temperature of the water
H is the temperature of the water at time t
The Attempt at a Solution
I'm rather at a loss at how to do this problem. I've tried setting up a system of equations and tried finding the room temperature, but that doesn't work out. So if algebra won't do it, then I'm assuming something calculus-y should. I'm just at a lost as what that is.
