Battery supplies a potential difference of 6v
At a certain temperature the current in the 45ohms resistor is 0.08A

How would you calculate the potential difference across the thermistor?

thanks :)

1. It depends on how the thermistor is connected. If connected in series:

Vtherm+Vr=6
Vtherm+45*.08=6
