  1. Jan 6, 2004 #1
    Hi please help I have to do a piece of coursework on sensors. I am testing a thermistor and my teacher mentioned something about calibration but I dunno what it is can someone help please. I have taken results for the resistances for every ten degrees from 0 to 150

    Emerse your sensor in a water/ice chip mix to find the value at 0C. This will calibrate your scale.
