In summary, the conversation discusses the rate of heat loss and whether it remains constant during any period. It is concluded that the rate of heat loss is not constant and varies depending on the change in temperature, following Newton's law of cooling. The relationship between heat loss and time is not linear but rather exponential, and it cannot be determined solely from the given equation without experimental data.

Well it depends on how your results say that the heat loss varies with time.

The law is given as the differential equation:

Well it shows that your rate of heat loss is directly proportional to the change in temperature function.

You cannot say from the equation what this function unless your experimental data can be analyzed to find it.

so can i just say that the rate of heat loss should not have been constant.

Yes.

The rate of heat loss remaining constant refers to the amount of heat energy that is being lost from a system over a specific period of time. This rate is constant when the system is in a steady state, meaning that the amount of heat being lost is equal to the amount of heat being gained.

The rate of heat loss remaining constant can affect temperature by keeping it constant. As long as the rate of heat loss remains constant, the temperature of the system will not change. This is known as thermal equilibrium.

Several factors can affect the rate of heat loss remaining constant, including the surface area of the system, the type of material the system is made of, and the temperature difference between the system and its surroundings. Other factors such as air flow and insulation can also play a role.

The rate of heat loss remaining constant can be calculated using the formula Q/t = kA(delta T), where Q is the amount of heat lost, t is the time period, k is the thermal conductivity of the material, A is the surface area, and delta T is the temperature difference between the system and its surroundings.

The rate of heat loss remaining constant is important to consider in scientific experiments because it can affect the accuracy and reliability of the results. If the rate of heat loss is not constant, it can lead to fluctuations in temperature and skew the data. Understanding and controlling the rate of heat loss can help ensure more precise and consistent results in experiments.
