Is the time to (naturally) decrease temperature of water by 5 degrees the same, regardless of the initial temperature? Imagine 3 glasses of water (a, b c) in a room temperature of 70F.
There are 3 scenarios:
a) initial water temperature: 120F. final temperature: 115F b) initial water temperature: 110F. final temperature: 105F c) initial water temperature: 100F. final temperature: 95F
The question is - does the time for water to decrease its temperature by 5F for all cases above (a,b,c) is the same? Or the time is different for each case?
