−k t +2 or 48.6e ( 1 ) = 10 . Dividing the second equation by the first equation gives the 1 ln 2 relationship e −2 k = from which k = . Using this value for k the equation for T ( t

gives 70 = 50 + 48.6e −t 1 ln 2 2 from which we find t1 ≈ 2.6 hours. Thus, the person was killed approximately 2 hours and 36 minutes before 8 P.M., or at 5:24 P.M. (b)

Following exactly the same steps as in part (a) but with T0 = 98.2° F, the sequence of equations is T(t1) = 70 = 50 + 48.2e − k (t1 ) ⇒ 48.2e − kt1 = 20. T(t1 + 2) = 60 = 50 + 48.2e− k (t1 + 2) ⇒ 48.2e − k (t1 + 2) = 10. Dividing the second equation by the first still gives the relationship e−2k = so k =

ln 2 . 2

Now we have T(t1) = 70 = 50 + 48.2e −t1 ln 2 / 2 which gives t1 ≈ 2.54 hours, or 2 hours and 32 minutes. This estimates the time of the murder at 5.28 PM, only 4 minutes earlier than calculated in part (a). „

A Real Mystery

T ( t ) = T0 e− kt + M 1 − e − kt

While the can is in the refrigerator T0 = 70 and M = 40 , yielding the equation T ( t ) = 40 + 30e − kt . Measuring time in minutes, we have T (15 ) = 40 + 30e −15k = 60 , ⎛ 1 ⎞ ⎛ 2⎞ which gives k = − ⎜ ⎟ ln ⎜ ⎟ ≈ 0.027 . Letting t1 denote the time the can was removed from the ⎝ 15 ⎠ ⎝ 3 ⎠ refrigerator, we know that the temperature at that time is given by T ( t1 ) = 40 + 30e
