First-order Linear Differential Equation and Integrating Factor. A Derivation of Newton’s Law of Cooling

Hello,

I am a medically retired chemical engineer and I am refreshing my mathematics, learning C++ programming, and refreshing my basic engineering as a psychological form of mindfulness.

Every once in a while, I find a problem that I like a little more than others. Since I am in calculus, there are many problems that I like, in truth, but I am a slow typist and I am learning LaTeX.

Anyhow, what engineer would not like one of Sir Newton’s derivations[1]?
