Question

A pizza pan is removed at 9:00 PM from an oven whose temperature is fixed at 450°F into a room that is a constant 70°F. After 5​ minutes, the pizza pan is at 300°F.
​(a) At what time is the temperature of the pan 125°F? ​
(b) Determine the time that needs to elapse before the pan is 150°. ​
(c) What do you notice about the temperature as time​ passes?

A) It will get to a temperature of 125°F at 9:19 PM

B) It will get to a temperature of 150°F at 9:16 PM

C) as time passes temperature approaches the initial temperature of 450°F

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given;

Initial temperature; T_i = 450°F

Room temperature; T_r = 70°F

From Newton’s law of cooling, temperature after time (t) is given as;

T(t) = T_r + (T_i – T_r)e^(-kt)

Where k is cooling rate and t is time after the initial temperature.

Now, we are told that After 5​ minutes, the temperature is 300°F.

Thus;

300 = 70 + (450 – 70)e^(-5k)

300 – 70 = 380e^(-5k)

230/380 = e^(-5k)

e^(-5k) = 0.6053

-5k = In 0.6053

-5k = -0.502

k = 0.502/5

k = 0.1004 /min

A) Thus, at temperature of 125°F, we can find the time from;

125 = 70 + (450 – 70)e^(-0.1004t)

125 – 70 = 380e^(-0.1004t)

55/380 = e^(-0.1004t)

In (55/380) = -0.1004t

-0.1004t = -1.9328

t = 1.9328/0.1018

t ≈ 19 minutes

Thus, it will get to a temperature of 125°F at 9:19 PM

B) Thus, at temperature of 150°F, we can find the time from;

150 = 70 + (450 – 70)e^(-0.1004t)

150 – 70 = 380e^(-0.1004t)

80/380 = e^(-0.1004t)

In (80/380) = -0.1004t

-0.1004t = -1.5581

t = 1.5581/0.1004

t ≈ 16 minutes.

Thus, it will get to a temperature of 150°F at 9:16 PM

C) As time passes which means as it approaches to infinity, it means that e^(-kt) gets to 1.

Thus,we have;

T(t) = T_r + (T_i – T_r)

T_r will cancel out to give;

T(t) = T_i

Thus, as time passes temperature approaches the initial temperature of 450°F
