Rate of Cooling Experiment

Hi :smile:

Tomorrow I will be performing an experiment trying to prove that the Rate of cooling of water is directly proportional to the excess temperature5/4

I am going to be recording the change in temperature over time using a data logger and record the temperature of the room simultaneously.

I understand the relationship between the excess temperature and the rate of cooling, but, I can't see how, according to my teacher, when I perform the same experiment but lagging the water beaker, I will still get the same proportion...

Is it because the rate of cooling will be decreased but for it to reach a certain temperature it will take longer?

Thanks
