Homework Help: Newton's Law of Cooling

Posted by Helga on Tuesday, December 13, 2011 at 12:28am.

You are a forensic doctor called to a murder scene. When the victim was discovered, the body temperature was measured and found to be 20°C. You arrive one hour later and find the body temperature at that time to be 18°C. Assuming that the ambient temperature remained constant in that intervening hour, give the police an estimate of the time of death. (Take 37°C as normal body temperature.)
