9 The Newton’s law of cooling states that the rate of change in temperature of an

object is proportional to the difference between its temperature and the

surrounding temperature. This law could be used in forensic science such as

investigation for murder cases:

It was noon on a cold December day in London with a temperature of 16°C.

Detective Chin, a famous detective in the district, arrived at the crime scene to find

the sergeant leaning over a body. The sergeant said there were several suspects. If

they knew the exact time of death, then they could narrow down the list. Detective

Chin measured the temperature of the body, which was 35°C. He then left for lunch.

Upon returning at 1:00 pm, he measured the temperature of the body again, which

was 34°C.

Let the temperature of the body at time ˮ be 0.

(i) Obtain a differential equation from the Newton’s law of cooling. [2]

(ii) Express 0 in terms of ˮ. [6]

(iii) By assuming that the normal body temperature (37 °C ) drops immediately

when a person dies, estimate the time of the murder. [3]
