Problem 16E

According to Newton's law of cooling, the time  needed for an object at an initial temperature  to cool to a temperature  in an environment with ambient temperature  is given by

where  is a constant. Assume that for a certain type of container, . Let  be the number of minutes needed to cool the container to a temperature of . Assume that  and . Estimate , and find the uncertainty in the estimate.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Answer:

Step 1 of 2

In this question we are asked to find the estimate of Newton’s law cooling equation and the uncertainty in the estimate.

Newton’s law cooling equation  = -…………..(1)

Where

 t is the number of minutes needed to cool the container

is a initial temperature

 is an ambient temperature

 is a constant

is a cooling temperature

Given parameters:

 = 0.025 , = 70.1 ± 0.2°F, = 35.7 ± 0.1 °F and

The quantity which we are estimating has several measurements. In this question we are measuring the initial temperature  and ambient temperature . These quantity mentioned here is uncertain and independent measurements.

So here we can use the following basic formula.

       ……………...(2)

Where , ,........, are independent measurements and uncertainties are , ,.........,

Equation 2 is called the multivariate propagation of error formula.
