## Homework Statement

A thermistor's temperature dependence is given by R=R

_{0}e

^{b/t}

where R is in ohms T is in Kelvins R

_{0}and B are constants to be found.

a) If R =7360 at the ice point and 153 at steam point find R

_{0}and B

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I took logs so

LnR=R

_{0}B/T

rearranged so

(LnR)T/B=R

_{0}

then get simultaneous equations but the constant i am trying to find so for this example B are just going to cancel?

(Ln153)x373.15/B = (Ln7360)x273.15/B

Thanks in advance
