Using Netwon Law of Cool, the graph of T(t)=S+(T subscript S)e^kt approaches a horizontal asymptote.What does the asymtote describe?
a) intial temperature of the heated object
b) temperature of the surrounding environment
c) the difference in the temparture of the heated object and temp of of surrounding environment
d) cooling constant

Math 
bobpursley,
This is the entire point of exponential decline. What do you think?

Math 
bobpursley,
Nope, what will temperature be in a thousand years?

Math 
bobpursley,
I will give it to you. Goodness, temperature will finally approach the temperature of the surrounding environment.

b) temperature of the surrounding environment
