cools, its temperature T (x) in degrees celsius is givien by the following function, where x is the number of minute since the can was placed in the cooler.
Find the intial temperature of the soda and its temperature after 20 mintues. Round your answers to the nearest degrees as necessary.
Initial temperature:___ celsius.
Temperature after 20 minutes:__celsius.
T(x) = -6 + 24e^-.038x
Initial temperature would be zero minutes, anything multiplied by zero becomes zero and anything raised to the zero power is one
T(0) = -6 +24(1)
T(0) = -6 + 24 = 18
Initial temperature is 18 celcius
T(20) = -6 +24e^(-.038(20))
T(20) = -6 +24e^-.76
equals about 5.223994248 degrees celcius
