Abstract

This report constitutes a user manual for Microsoft Excel-based software developed at the National Physical Laboratory for determining the best-fit low degree (1, 2, 3 or 4) polynomial calibration function to a set of data comprising measured values of stimulus and response variables and uncertainties associated with the values. Additionally, given measured values of the response variable and their associated uncertainties, the software can be used to obtain estimates of the corresponding values of the stimulus variable and their associated uncertainties.
