3) Resistance temperature coefficient

The resistance-temperature coefficient (α) is defined as the rate of change of the zero-power resistance associated with a temperature variation of 1˚C at any given temperature.
The relationship between the resistance-temperature coefficient (α) and the B value can be obtained by differentiating equation 1 above.



A negative value signifies that the rated zero-power resistance decreases
