A hot bowl of soup is served at a dinner party. It starts to cool according to Newton's Law of Cooling so that its temperature at time t is given by

T(t) = 51 + 140e−0.05t

The initial temperature is when t=0, We simply plug in t=0 as the initial temp and we get T(0)=51+140e^(-0.05*0)

Hence we get T(0)=51+140(1)=191 F
