Abstract : Using a thermistor in a D. C. bridge configuration, a relationship was developed between the bridge open-circuit output potential and the absolute temperature. This thermistor function accurately predicts temperature magnitudes and changes in temperature over large spans. The function was completely determined by the temperature coefficient of resistance of the thermistor, by a characteristic bridge resistance ratio, and by the absolute temperature. The function was programmed satisfactorily in Fortran IV. (Author)
