Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The formula is: R2 = R1 ( 1 + a ( t2  t1 ) ) R1 = 50 (Resistance no. 1) [Ohm] t1 = 20 (Temperature no. 1) [Celsius] t2 = 80 (Temperature no. 2) [Celsius] a = 0.004 (Temperature coefficient) For more info on that one check http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_1/chpt_12/6.html The resistance, R, of a length of wire is described by the expression: R = ρL/A ρ = resistivity of the material composing the wire, L = length of the wire, and A = area of the conducting cross section of the wire. I guess this will do. Have fun.
