A thermometer reading 7 degrees C is brought into a room with a constant temperature of 29 degrees C.
If the thermometer reads 15 degrees C after 4 minutes, what will it read in 6 minutes? 11 minutes?

So I guess I need to put into newton's law of cooling:
u(t) = T + (u sub zero - T ) e^kt

How do I solve for k so can plug in my T's. and what is u sub zero? initial what?
