- Homework Statement
- Find Ro, a, and b.

- Relevant Equations
- R(T) = Ro (1 + aT + bT2 )

I am asked to find Ro, a, and b. Th problem states the values are determined by the measurements at the normal ice, steam and sulfur points. So I approached the problem by plugging the the temperature problems. For 0°C, Ro reduces to 7 ohms. Then for the other two non zero temperatures, it looks like I am left with a system of equations.

I am a bit stumbled because the values associated for a and b of both equations arent factors of each other, so canceling out seems a bit trickier. I don't really recall running across a problem like this before.

Am I approaching this problem correctly? If so what is a way to solve for a and b?
