for delta T is it always Tf-Ti because lets say a copper at 100 degrees celsius were to drop in temperature, is the delta T Tf-100 or 100 -Ti

DeltaT would be Tfinal - Tinitial. Because it drops in temperature, let’s say to 80 degrees, Tfinal - Tinitial would be 80 - 100 = -20, indicating a drop in temperature with the negative sign.
