the resistance of the platinum wire of a platinum resistance thermometer at the ice point is 5 ohm and at steam point is 5.23 ohm .When the thermometer is inserted in a hot bath , the resistance of the platinum wire is 5.795 ohmcalculate the temprature of the bath

use this formula 

R2/R1 = 1 + A ( T2 - T1

A is the temperature constant u have to find . 

R1 = 5     ;    R2 = 5.23 

T1 = 0     ;     T2 = 100 

after finding A , put back the value for the new resistance and find the temperature .
