- The new Maytag dishwasher has a digital thermometer that records the internal temperature of the machine during and following its wash cycle so as to prevent burns. The temperature display is updated and recorded every 8 minutes. On the day the company tested the dishwasher, the temperature in the kitchen was .
The following table shows the readings that were recorded during the testing of the dishwasher.
Time(min) | 0 | 8 | 16 | 24 | 32 | 10 |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|
Temp | 202 | 188.4 | 176.2 | 165.2 | 155.2 | 146.4 |
(a) Determine the rate at which the dishwasher is cooling.
(b) Determine the value of ‘’ in and write an exponential function to model the temperature of the dishwasher after ‘’ minutes.
(c) Determine the equation of the horizontal asymptote.
(d) Determine the temperature of the dishwasher after 3 hours.

After 4 hours, 2.4 mg of the capsule remain in your body.
(a)
Time(min) | 0 | 8 | 16 | 24 | 32 | 10 |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|
Temp | 202 | 188.4 | 176.2 | 165.2 | 155.2 | 146.4 |
Temp - 66 | 136 | 122.4 | 110.2 | 99.2 | 89.2 | 80.4 |
The common ratio is 0.9. Therefore the dishwasher is cooling at a rate of which is 10% every eight minutes.
(b) The value of ‘’ in is the initial temperature less the temperature in the kitchen. Therefore, the value of ‘’ is .
An exponential function to model the temperature of the dishwasher after ‘’ minutes is
(c) The equation of the horizontal asymptote is
(d) The washer’s temperature after 3 hours (180 minutes) is
(e) The sketch of the dishwasher’s change in temperature over time is shown below:
