Unformatted text preview: In your transient temperature studies with a step input in temperature, the data you record (in an idealized form) will look similar to Figure 14. This is a result of using Equation (1)in Excel. The step response data can be further analyzed by applying Equation (3). The logarithmic representation makes the response linear (ideally) and the slope of the linear result can be used to obtain the time constant of the transient response as shown in Figure 15. 16 Page 16 of 16...
