What is the unit of the system-universe temperature variation coefficient?

The system is a container holding a mass of water.T

The universe I guess is the room temperature.T_{room}

tis time in seconds.

[tex]\Psi[/tex]is the temperature variation coefficient.

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\Delta[/tex]T / [tex]\Delta[/tex]t = [tex]\Psi[/tex](T - T_{room})

[tex]\Psi[/tex]t = ln ((T_{o}- T_{room}) / (T - T_{room}))

3. The attempt at a solution

Since it is temperature over time I thought that it would be degrees per second? But that is angular velocity so I'm sure that's not it.
