Mechanical Equivalent of Heat — Software for a Thermistor
1.Instruction Manual and Experiment Guide for the PASCO scientific Model TD-8551A, PASCO scientific (May 1994), p. 9.
2.J. S. Steinhart and S. R. Hart, “Calibration curves for thermistors,” Deep Sea Res. 15, 497–503 (1968).
3.Since the argument of the natural logarithm should be dimensionless, it is understood that Eq. (4) could more formally be written as:
4.MEchHeat determines the Steinhart-Hart coefficients by fitting TC-vs-R data read from an input data file. By default, an input file containing the TC-vs-R data from PASCO is used, but the user can supply his/her own data for a custom fit.
5.R is typed in by the user. δR is the digital multimeter's instrumental uncertainty. An uncertainty of 1.5% is used by default, but the percentage error can be changed by the user.
