Newton’s law of cooling states that the rate of change of the temperature T of an object is proportional to the difference between T and the (constant) temperature t of the surrounding medium. We can write it as \[\frac{dT}{dt}=-K(T-t),K>0\; constant.\]A cup of coffee is served at $ 185^\circ F$ in a room where the temperature is $65^\circ F .$ Two minutes later the temperature of the coffee has dropped to $155^\circ F.$(log 3/4=0.144, log3 = 1.09872). Find the time required for coffee to have $105^\circ F$ temperature.
