Detector Building C

Post by RiverWalker88 » September 18th, 2020, 2:02 pm

Because this event has a test component, and it will be pretty heavily leaning on the test component, a question marathon is in order for Detector Building.

For more information on Question Marathons, see the overview here.
The Detector Building Forum can be found here.

A couple of easier questions to begin this marathon with:
  1. What is the name of the equation that relates temperature with the resistance of a thermistor?
  2. A really strange microcontroller has a 13-bit ADC.
    1. How many steps does this microcontroller have?
    2. If the input voltage is 5V, what is the step size?

Thanks
1. Yep
2.a. I think this one is 8191, because steps are just the jumps that can be made. (Or maybe I'm confused).
2.b. Yep
Your turn!
