A Class Inquiry into Newton's Cooling Curve
Bartholow, Martin
Journal of Chemical Education, v84 n10 p1684-1685 Oct 2007
Newton's cooling curve was chosen for the four-part laboratory inquiry into conditions affecting temperature change. The relationship between time and temperature is not foreseen by the average high school student before the first session. However, during several activities students examine the classic relationship, T = A exp[superscript -Ct] + B and explore the physical conditions that influence the three constants.
