Im having a bit of trouble using Newton's Law of cooling. I have been given the formula [tex]T(t)=T_s + (T_0 - T_s) e^{-kt} [/tex]. Im trying to find the time of death of a body, and im given the time the body was found 12.00pm, its temp around 90, 2nd check, at around 1.00pm, temp is 80, and the surrounding temp is 75. How would i find the time of death, assuming that the body when it died was 100.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Note these values are prolly inacurate, im just wanting to know how to use it to find the time of death. Thanks.
