Hi,

I have been exploring Newtons Law of Cooling. What relationship should i expect to see from the cooling constant "k". I have plotted the "k" values for each equation that i have developed (based off of different volumes of water in the same sized beaker). So, when the "k" vs volume graph is plotted, what trend should i see as the volume increases?? and why is this trend occuring. Any Mathematical working using Newtons formula showing to show this trend would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Ben
