Abstract

This research work attempts to verify newton’s law of cooling using temperature of human palm and ambient temperature of Akure, Southwestern Nigeria as case study. The two temperature were measured hourly for three days, 8th, 9th and 10th Julian day of 2016. The initial local conditions measured were used to obtain solution for the Newton’s equations for both rising and falling temperature. The results obtained shows that newton’s equation predicts temperature more accurately for falling temperature than rising temperature. The research also revealed the comparative variation of the Laboratory, Palm and Environmental (Outside) temperatures, thus, making available vital information to environmental health scientists.
