Temperature of a mug of water as it cools




A data frame with 222 observations of the following variables.

  • time time in minutes

  • temp temperature in Celsius


The water was poured into a mug and a temperature probe inserted into the water with a few seconds of the pour.


These data were collected Stan Wagon to help his mathematical modeling students explore Newton's Law of Cooling and the ways that the law is really only an approximation. More about Stan: http://stanwagon.com.
