Hello,

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
