  1. 7-020-S-ThermometerInVaryingTempStream

    22 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Norman Loney

    We present a differential equation model for the temperature of a mercury thermometer which is sitting in a stream of water whose temperature oscillates. We suggest a solving strategy which uses Laplace Transforms.
