    I have a NTC thermistor with a nominal resistance of 100R at 25 degC and a
    beta value of 3600.
    How do I calculate its resistance at 80 degC (or any other temperature) from

    Thanks in anticipation

    R @ T = R @ 25 * e^(B/(T + 273) - B/(25 + 273))

    where T is Centigrade

    so R @ 80 = 100 * e^(3600/353 - 3600/298)

    (e = 2.7183)

    IIRC, it's:

    R = Ro*exp(Beta*(1/T-1/To)) T in °K
