EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The study focused on the estimating time of death using first-order linear differential equation. This was conducted at the University of Rizal System-Morong during the school year 2017-2018. The subject of the study was the estimating time of death. The data gathered was conducted in San Geronimo Funeral Service Homes and Municipality of Morong, Rizal. The researchers used the first-order linear differential equation to show the computed time of death would be equal or close enough to the data gathered. After using the said formula the researchers concluded that the accuracy of results of time of death largely depends on the length of post-mortem period. The shorter the post-mortem period, the more accurate is the estimated time of death. Consequently, the longer the post-mortem interval, the wider is the range of estimated time of death. The researchers recommended parallel study using first-order linear differential equation in other situations.
