Some Physical Models Arising as Separable Equations 33 A Cool Problem In addition to free-fall problems, separable equations arise in some simple thermodynamics applications. One such application is the following example. Suppose that a pie is removed from a hot oven and placed in a cool room. After a given period of time the pie has a temperature of 150◦ F. We want to determine the time required to cool the pie to a temperature of 80◦ F, when we can finally enjoy eating it. This example is an application of Newton’s law of cooling, which states the rate at which the temperature T (t) changes in a cooling body is proportional to the difference between the temperature of the body and the constant temperature Ts of the surrounding medium.

In the same equation suppose that a(t) > 0, and let x0 (t) be the solution for which the initial condition x(0) = b is satisfied. Show that for every positive ε > 0 there is a δ > 0, such that if we perturb the function f (t) and the number b by a quantity less than δ, then the solution x(t), t > 0, is perturbed by less than ε. The word perturbed is understood in the following sense: f (t) is replaced by f1 (t) and b is replaced by b1 where |f1 (t) − f (t)| < ε, |b1 − b| < δ. This property of the solution x(t) is called stability for persistent disturbances.
