Think this question is more of a physics than math question. Anyways I am trying to figure out how to make a calculator to figure out what temperature something is at based on the ohm reading I get. I have several readings to go by but I think doing it exponentially is the wrong way to go about it since the readings I calculate are not very accurate based on the quadratic regression method I have been doing.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Wikipedia shows the formula on this page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Callendar-Van_Dusen_equation) but I don't know how to figure out any of the coefficients or anything.

Thanks for any help I can get!
