**1. The problem statement, all variables, and given/known data**

Q1

Resistance at 0 degrees Celsius = 3840 ohms

Resistance at 100 degrees Celsius = 190 ohms

Resistance at ? degrees Celsius = 2300 ohms

a. Calculate the temperature of the water according to calibrated thermistor assuming the thermistor varies linearly with temperature?

Answer = 42 Celsius

B. The temperature of water on the thermodynamic scale of temperature is 286K. BY reference to what is meant by thermodynamic scale of temperature, comment on your answer of a(i)

## The Attempt at a Solution

What should be the answer to B? I am not sure what is meant by the thermodynamic scale of temperature and secondly, I am aware there is a discrepancy between the temperature recorded by both but what reason should I provide for the wrong answer given by the thermistor?
