Instructions to Students

Read the problem below and answer the questions. Each group has to submit

1 report, either typewritten or neatly handwritten. Note that any research related to

the tasks assigned (either through Internet, books, etc) should be properly recorded in

your report.

3

The deadline for this report is week 15 (tutorial lesson). Late submissions

may be penalized.

This PBL constitutes 5% of your overall assessment.

Problem trigger:

Eddie recently found a new job as a hotel chef. On his first day of work, his supervisor

informed him at 6pm that a particular hard-to-please customer had ordered a pot of beef stew

and requested it to be delivered to his room at 7pm. The customer had also specified that the

delivered stew had to be around room temperature for his eating pleasure. Eddie knew that it

was impossible to cook the stew and let it cool to around room temperature on its own by

7pm. He was advised by his colleagues to cool the pot of stew in a sink full of ice and stirring

the stew occasionally so that its temperature will drop more quickly. He was also told that, by

o

o

doing so, the temperature of the stew will drop from 100 C to 60 C in twelve minutes.

Based on this information, your task is to help Eddie find out the time needed for the stew to

cool to room temperature so that he will not over-cool the stew and offend the customer.

Q1:

Using Microsoft Excel, plot a graph of the temperature of the stew (T/ C) against the

time that has elapsed (t/min) (refer Appendix A [1]).

(1 mark)

Q2:

There are 2 suspected mathematical models that fit the graph obtained in Q1. The 2

suspected mathematical models, where a and b are constants, are as follows:

(A)

T ae bt

(B)

T at

bt 100

You need to investigate which model is the correct model by verifying each of them

with the straight line:

(i) Express both the non-linear equations (A) and (B) into linear form, stating the

terms to be plotted on the vertical and horizontal axis (Show your workings clearly).

(ii) Construct a new table using the terms stated above to plot a suitable straight line

graph for (A) and (B) separately.

(iii) From the straight line graphs obtained in (ii) for model A and model B, verify and

state which model is the correct one. Hence, determine the values of constant a and b

for the correct model.

(1.5 marks)

Q3:

Using the model formed in Q2 (iii), determine how long should the stew be ready so

that Eddie can cool it and deliver to the customer on time (Show your workings

clearly).

(0.5 mark)

Q4:

It was stated in the question that Eddie stirred the pot occasionally. Discuss (in

relation to the mathematical equation in Q2(iii)) why we need to assume that the pot

is well-stirred. (Hint: What would happen if Eddie did not stir the stew occasionally?

Would it still cool the same way?)

(0.5 mark)

Q5:

Besides the assumption stated in Q4 above, list two other assumptions that need to be

made in order for your answer in Q3 to be valid.

(0.5 mark)

Q6:

Read about Newton's Law of Cooling and state the mathematical law. Using the

Newtons Law of Cooling formulae, relate and substitute the parameters in the

formulae with the information about the soup.
