Two different hot objects, A and B, both at 100ºC, are placed in a room at 20ºC. After 20.0 minutes, A has cooled down to 70.0ºC and B to 80.0ºC.
(a) Which one has the greater decay
(b) What is the ratio of the larger decay constant to the smaller?
(c) How long will it take A to cool down from 70.0º to 40.0º?
