Dear Jayakany

Here is the concept of exposed area to the atmosphere.

we know that for same volume sphere has minimum surface area,plate has maximum surface area.

so  sphere cool slowest  and plate coo fastest

since we know that sphere has minimum surface area and plate has maximum surface area for same volume.and as per newtons law of cooling heat loss is directly propotional to exposed here Cube will be cooled faster than sphere but slower than circular plate means 1.circular plate 2. cube 3. sphere

										We know, the speed of cooling down is directly proportional to the exposed area. In this case, plate has greatest exposed area and the sphere has the lowest exposed area. And the cube is in the middle of these 2 . So, first, the plate will cool down, then the cube, and lastly, the sphere will cool down.
