## Time of Death Calculator

• The Time Of Death Calculator is used to quickly determine the gestational age of your baby with only one piece of information.
• This calculator helps you to estimate the time since death based on body and ambient temperature.
• The Time of Death calculator computes the amount of time since a human has died based on the current body temperature and the ambient temperature of the air around the body.

## Steps To Calculate Time Of Death

1. Enter The Body Temperature
2. Enter The Ambient Temperature
3. Calculate The Time Of Death Hours

## Formula For Time Of Death

• The time period in hours from death to when a body is found can be estimated from the body and ambient temperature based on an equation by Glaister.
• Time of Death Formula By Glaister

Time since death = (98.6 °F - Body temperature in °F) / T

Where

1. Time since death is given in hours;
2. Body temperature is given in Fahrenheit (F); and
3. T is a factor that depends on the ambient temperature:
• When ambient temperature < 32°F (0°C), T = 1.5; and
• When ambient temperature ≥ 32°F (0°C), T = 0.75.

### Why does the T factor change?

• A body begins to cool from the moment of death - the speed of this process is relatively quicker if the surrounding temperature is low enough to freeze water.
• We use 32°F (0°C) as the threshold - that's the temperature below which water turns into ice.
• Calculating the time of death using algor mortis - answers and key, we've got everything you need.
• Now let's try our hand at another method used by professionals.

## What is Time Of Death

• The Time of Death calculation is used to estimate the amount of time since the Time of Death for a body based on the temperature
• If you know temperature values in degrees then the result of time since death will be in hours.
• If the body temperature is equal to or less than the ambient temperature, the time since death is unknown.
• This is the simple equation where the body temperature and the ambient temperature are used to calculate the number of hours a body has been dead.
• This equation uses 1.5 degrees per hour cooling factor for cold days (slightly above freezing and colder) and 0.75 degrees for typical results above freezing.

Forensically, the time of death can be described in three ways:

• Physiological time of death – when the body ceased to function;
• Estimated time of death – an estimate based on the available information (i.e. body and ambient temperature);
• Legal time of death – the time at which body is found or the person is declared dead.

## Determine The Time of Death Using Rigor Mortis

• Another method of estimating the time of death is linked to the installation of rigor mortis,
• This is the natural process that starts to install roughly 2 hours after death and first occurs in the smaller muscles such as those in the face and neck and then covers the entire muscles of the body, as they become larger.
• Rigor mortis method works in the first 36 to 48 hours.
• It is also known as the post-death stiffness method.
• Rigor mortis is based on the fact that the corpse becomes rigid a few hours after death, and then becomes flexible again after a given period of time.

## Time Of Death Calculator FAQ

### How do you calculate time of death?

Time of Death Formula By Glaister

Time since death = (98.6 °F - Body temperature in °F) / T

### When is the time of death determined?

• The time of death is determined any time the circumstances of the death are unclear.
• That includes death in a public place with no witnesses, and the deaths of young, healthy people.
• The very first assessment is carried out by the police and the forensic scientist at the scene - their main goal is to secure all the evidence.
• A detailed investigation is then performed during the autopsy.

### What are Methods to assess the time of death?

Here are 4 methods to assess the time of death.

1. Assessing the interlethal reactions:

• Pupils' reaction after chemical stimulation
• Contractions after hitting the spot above the patella
• Muscles' contraction after chemical/electrical stimulation
• Production of sweat after chemical stimulation.
2. Desiccation (dryness of the body parts, e.g., lips).

3. Livor mortis - dark discoloration of the skin in parts of the body that were the closest to the ground.

4. Finally, putrefaction and decomposition of the body.
