## Resistor Temperature Coefficient Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Resistor Temperature Coefficient.

**RTC = dT / (t*R)**

Variables:

- RTC is the Resistor Temperature Coefficient (C/(hr-ohm))
- dT is the total temperature change (C)
- t is the total time (hr)
- R is the total resistance (ohms)

## How to Calculate Resistor Temperature Coefficient?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Resistor Temperature Coefficient.

- First, determine the total temperature change (C).
- Next, determine the total time (min).
- Next, determine the total resistance (ohms).
- Next, gather the formula from above = RTC = dT / (t*R).
- Finally, calculate the Resistor Temperature Coefficient.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total temperature change (C) = 30

total time (hr) = 2

total resistance (ohms) = 50

RTC = dT / (t*R) =** ** ?
