Smile PT100 equation

Hello all,

There is one Equation for PT 100 for negative temperature:
Rt = R0(1+aT+bT≤+cT≥(T-100))

R0=100 ohms
Rt is resistance of PT100
T temperature

so form this eq what will be the equation for T?
means T=?
Thanks in advance

The equation you show is fourth degree in T. You might be able to solve it for T with the information in this topic:

Grab their free massive temperature book. It's worth it.

Some other info

I suggest you put the equation into a spreadsheet and graph the equation to see what it looks like.
