Calculus with Diffrential Equations: Pleease help?

posted by .

Suppose that represents the temperature of a cup of coffee set out in a room, where T is expressed in degrees Fahrenheit and t in minutes.
A physical principle known as Newton’s Law of Cooling tells us that
dT/dt = -1/15T+5
15T + 5.
a) Supposes that T(0) = 105. What does the differential equation give us for the
value of dT
dt |T=0? Explain in a complete sentence the meaning of these two
facts.
(b) Is T increasing or decreasing at t = 0?
(c) What is the approximate temperature at t = 1?
(d) On a graph, make a plot of dT/dt as a function of T.
(e)For which values of T does T increase?
(f) What do you think is the temperature of the room? Explain your thinking.
(g) Verify that T(t) = 75 + 30e^(-t/15) is the solution to the differential equation with initial value T(0) = 105. What happens to this solution after a long time?
