I am new to Arduino and is working through the project book that comes with the starter kit.
I am currently working on the Love o Meter but cant understand the readings i get.
At first it shows a temperature around 22C, which seems reasonable. But when i touch the sensor it skyrocks in a matter of a few seconds to around 60C. Even if i remove my finger from the sensor, the temperature still linger around 60C without going down again.
I have looked over the wiring and the code multiple times, but i cant figure it out.
So i would really appreciate some help with this.
Here is the code for the voltage and temperature:
float voltage = (sensorVal/1024.0) * 5.0;
Serial.print(", Volts: ");
float temperature = (voltage - .5) * 100;
Serial.println(" degrees C");
Thank you in advance!
