Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've been a long time reader of this forum but haven't signed up for whatever reason.

So thanks for the wealth of information and solutions to my headaches.

I'm trying to figure out a coefficient of temperature equation and I'm having a hard time with the manipulation

for some reason.

I know the formula is:

a=alpha

R2=R1[1+a(T2-T1)]

However, the variable I'm solving for is T2.

I'm given R1,T1,R2,Coefficient of metal @ 20 degrees Celsius.

I'm a little ashamed because I know this isn't hard at all but its been a long time

since I've been at this stuff.

Thanks.
