Sorry for the basic question but it's been a while! I have a list of numbers:
A | B
0 | 0
32 | 3.6
64 | 7.6
128 | 15.6
255 | 31.5
And I need a formula such that I can put in any number (between 0 and 255
inclusive) for A, and obtain the result B. Unfortunately because this isn't
quite straightforward division I'm a bit stuck.
Just for a bit of background I'm writing a Linux driver for a USB-connected PC
power supply, and the current being drawn on the various rails is reported as
an 8-bit number (A) and for it to be of any use it will need to be converted
into amps (B). The values above are taken from the Windows driver, so there
could be some rounding issues in the values of B depending on how well that
code was written.
Annoyingly the six current rails all have slightly different values for B, so
I'd be grateful for a couple of tips so I can calculate a formula for each of
those as well.
