ab: Summary: Newton’s law of cooling, a staple of the calculus curriculum, is
an empirical law not meant for mathematical proof. However we show it
is mathematically equivalent to the intuitively appealing principle
that the average temperature of two cooling objects is equal to the
temperature of a single object with initial temperature the average of
the other two.
