Thermocouple calculation

  1. Apr 20, 2009 #1

    Could somebody help me with this equation?

    The Seebeck coefficients of each material are: Selenium; 900mV/°C (temperature at 0degC). Bismuth; -72mV/°C (temperature at 0°C).

    The two temperatures at each junction are 1000 °C and 0 °C.

    And, finally, the equation:

    If somebody could guide me through how to use the equation that'd be perfect. My mathematic skills are somewhat limited.

    Thank you
