Calibrating Vernier Analog Sensors

There are times when you may want to custom-calibrate your sensor or use two analog sensors in your project. The VernierLib commands are only supported for analog (BTA) sensors plugged into the Analog 1 port on the Vernier Arduino Interface Shield or into an Analog Protoboard Adapter wired to Arduino pin A0. You can use a second sensor in the Analog 2 port or in a second Analog Protoboard Adapter wired to Arduino pin A2, but you will need to manually calibrate your sensor to read data in either raw volts or sensor units. The following sections explain the equations used for each type of sensor.
