Abstract

Resource Image We offer data on the temperature of water in a beaker in a room of constant temperature and in a room of nonconstant temperature. Students consider both empirical and analytic modeling approaches. We offer additional data sets in Excel spreadsheets.

Article Context

Description

We offer you the opportunity to build mathematical models which describe the temperature of hot water in a beaker as it cools in a room environment of constant and then in a room of nonconstant temperature. Using both empirical and analytic models you will compare your results and decide which is the best model on criteria you select.
