The Water Cooling Experiment During this lab we measured, using our CBL's and graphing calculators, the change in temperature of a glass of boiling water left to cool in a room. The purpose of the lab is to see how exponential functions can be applied to real-life applications. During the experiment I'm expecting for the water temperature to decrease as soon as the water is taken of off the heating device. If the water is …

…in that it shows us how exponential functions can be applied to everyday life. Other questions that could follow from this work would be; what if you were to change the elevation? How would the data change in space (vacuum)? Since your body is made up of mostly water, would a forensics expert be able to calculate time of death by what your body temperature is relative to the ambient temperature? If not, why not?
