Example 5.6.10

A medical examiner (M.E.) notes the temperature of the body of a deceased person is 85°F, and the environment in which the body has been located is 65°F.  Being careful not to alter the surrounding temperature, the M.E. waits 15 minutes and again checks the body's temperature, finding it to be 80°F.  Using Newton's law of cooling, what estimate can the M.E. make for the time of death of the deceased?
