Ambient temperature is the temperature of the surrounding.
At this point, the ambient temperature is 30 °C
The initial temperature is:80°C
The temperature falls to 60°C in one minute.
Meaning the rate of cooling is (80-60)°C per minute. Which is :20°C per minute.
In the next one minute the temperature falls to:
60-20=40°C
SO the temperature of the body when we consider the ambient temperature
Is 30+40=70°C
