    Hi everyone. :wave:

    I have to do a practical and it involved measuring the sensitivity of a thermistor. How would you expose the circuit including the thermistor to different temperatures? I was thinking of a water bath, but electricity + water sounds like a big no no, but I need to be able to accurately measure the temperature also.

    Any ideas? And I'll give + rep.

    The fridge sounds like a good idea for cold temperatures, but the problem is getting a result for higher temperatures like 60*C. How can I produce those temperatures - which I can measure accurately e.g. like a liquid, since I can't really measure the temperature of rocks.

    Use a light oil rather than water. Cooking oil in a beaker. Bung the thermister in - it will be fine!
