I am trying to make a calculator to figure the temperature based on the ohm reading. I have done a lot of measuring with the sensor I am using and the results are in the excel. I tried calculating it with y=mx+b since it is linear but for some reason it doesn't seem to work. Any ideas?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is a pic of the excel if you don't want to download it.
