Textbook Question
Chapter 1, Problem 1.54QP

During calibration of an LVDT, the data shown in Table P1.54 were obtained. Using a spreadsheet program, plot the relation between the micrometer reading and voltage. What is the linear range of the LVDT? Determine the calibration factor of the LVDT by obtaining the best fit line of the data within the linear range.
