Newton’s law of cooling states that the rate of cooling of an object is proportional to the temperature difference between the object and its surroundings. So the rate of cooling for a bottle of lemonade at a room temperature of 75°F which is placed into a refrigerator with temperature of 38°F can be modeled by dT/dt=k(T-38) where T(t) is the temperature of the lemonade after t minutes and T(0) = 75. After 30 minutes the lemonade has cooled to 60°F, so T(30) = 60. To the nearest degree, what is the temperature of the lemonade after an additional 30 minutes?
