NONLINEAR MODELS – For the latter part of the quiz, we will explore some nonlinear models.



Data: On a particular summer day, the outdoor temperature was recorded at 8 times of the day, and the following table was compiled. A scatterplot was produced and the parabola of best fit was determined.


t = Time of day (hour)

y = Outdoor

Temperature (degrees F.)



















Quadratic Polynomial of Best Fit:

      y = 0.3476t2 + 10.948t 6.0778  where t = Time of day (hour) and y = Temperature (in degrees)


REMARKS: The times are the hours since midnight. For instance, 7 means 7 am, and 13 means 1 pm.


(a) Using algebraic techniques we have learned, find themaximum temperaturepredicted by the quadratic model and find thetime when it occurred. Report the time to the nearest quarter hour (i.e., __:00 or __:15 or __:30 or __:45). (For instance, a time of 18.25 hours is reported as 6:15 pm.) Report the maximum temperature to the nearest tenth of a degree. Show algebraic work.













(b) Use the quadratic polynomial to estimate the outdoor temperature at 7:30 am, to the nearest tenth of a degree. (work optional)



(c)Use the quadratic polynomial y = 0.3476t2 + 10.948t 6.0778  together with algebra toestimate the time(s) of day when the outdoor temperature  y was 75 degrees.

That is, solve the quadratic equation 75 = 0.3476t2 + 10.948t 6.0778  .

Show algebraic work in solving. State your results clearly; report the time(s) to the nearest quarter hour. 























Data:A cup of hot coffee was placed in a room maintained at a constant temperature of 69 degrees, and the coffee temperature was recorded periodically, in Table 1. 


t = Time Elapsed


C = Coffee

Temperature (degrees F.)

















Common sense tells us that the coffee will be cooling off and its temperature will decrease and approach the ambient temperature of the room, 69 degrees.


So, the temperature difference between the coffee temperature and the room temperature will decrease to 0.


We will fit the temperature difference data (Table 2) to an exponential curve of the form y=Aebt.  


Notice that as tgets large, ywill get closer and closer to 0, which is what the temperature difference will do.  

So, we want to analyze the data wheret= time elapsed andy=C 69, the temperature difference between the coffee temperature and the room temperature.



t  = Time Elapsed (minutes)

y= C 69 Temperature


(degrees F.)



















Exponential Function of Best Fit (using the data in Table 2):

      y = 89.976 e 0.023t  where t = Time Elapsed (minutes) and y = Temperature Difference (in degrees)


(a) Use the exponential function to estimate the temperature difference y when 25 minutes have elapsed. Report your estimated temperature difference to the nearest tenth of a degree.  (explanation/work optional)





(b) Sincey=C 69, we have coffee temperatureC=y+ 69. Take your difference estimate from part (a)  and add 69 degrees. Interpret the result by filling in the blank:


            When 25 minutes have elapsed, the estimated coffee temperature is  ________   degrees.


(c)Suppose the coffee temperature C is 100 degrees.Theny=C 69 = ____ degrees is the temperature difference between the coffee and room temperatures.

(d) Consider  the equation   _____ =  89.976 e 0.023t  where the ____ is filled in with your answer from part (c).
