You put some ice cubes in a glass, fill the glass with cold water, and then let the glass sit on the table. Describe how the temperature of the water changes as time passes.

*as time passes the tempt. rises so the ice cube starts melting, right?

right

• calculus -

but I think it really depend on how much time passes

• calculus -

at first, the temp. will go down slightly, but then gradually increase as more time passes

• calculus -

if i graphed the function, the tempt(vertical) will go down and then increase with time(horizontal)?

• calculus -

yes, I think at first the ice will make the water a little more cold, then after some time the water will get warmer

• calculus -

Temperature is an exponential function
