\[dH/dt = -k(H-68)\]

why is it a negative k
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well, the negative indicates that the rate of change is going down: The closer you get to 68 degrees, the more slowly you change temperature. k is just a constant :D

is it safe to say that when we are dealing with temperature it will bee a negative k
anonymous
  • anonymous
No. It HAS TO BE A NEGATIVE K. This is RATE, not the actual temperature.

okay . so i am trying to the problem but the differential equation has been written like this dH/dt=k(68−H)

do you know why?
