/*
 * This Arduin sketch is to use LM35 to measure temperature
 * This code has two way to get temperature
 * 1-To print the temperatuere either in C, F or K on the serial monitor
 * 2-To return the value in C, F and K
 * 
 * Watch Video instrution for this code:https://youtu.be/S5IBc_epa1A

 * Full explanation of this code and wiring diagram is available at
 * my Arduino Course at Udemy.com here: http://robojax.com/L/?id=62
