Newton's Law of Cooling basically states (I believe):(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

T_{Obj}= (T_{Inital}-T_{Env})e^{kt}+ T_{Env}

where k is a property of the material.

In the equation:

Q=mCΔT

Specific heat capacity, C, is also a material property.

So here's my question:

Is there a relation between Newton's Law's k and the specific heat capacity of the material?

Also, I'm in a debate whether Newton's Law requires a draft to be accurate. Any information either way would be useful.

Thanks
