Hey guys!
moxigen here. Since the summer's out here it's been scorching hot and has made me wonder what would be the temperature. Hence, I decided to put together some stuff to create a temperature sensor.

Step 1: Materials Required

You would require the following parts:
1. A 16x2 LCD screen(JHD162A used in my case.

2. A 10k potentiometer.

3. LM35 temperature sensor

4. jumper wires

5.A breadboard

6. A Arduino Prototype( Arduino Mega 2560 used in my case)

Step 2: Wire It Up

Connect the LCD and LM35 as shown.

Step 3: Uploading the Code Via USB

#include
float temp;
int tempPin = 0;
LiquidCrystal lcd(12, 11, 5, 4, 3, 2);

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  lcd.begin(16, 2);
}

void loop()
{
  temp = analogRead(tempPin);
  temp = temp * 0.48828125;
  Serial.print("TEMPRATURE = ");
  Serial.print(temp);
  Serial.print("*C");
  Serial.println();
  lcd.setCursor(0,0);
  lcd.print("Temperature:");
  lcd.setCursor(0,1);
  lcd.print(temp);
  lcd.print("*c");
  delay(1000);
}

Step 4: Acknowledgements

Thank ya all for having a look at my instructable. I'm open to criticism, so feel free to comment.

Also, please follow my Instagram account if possible( moxigen)
<p>ivan</p><p>wire pin2 lcd stops in no ware</p>
<p>liked it</p>
<p>Glad to know that :)</p>
<p>i did all as above my lcd working well displaying but my lm35 getting heat and my arduino gets off may i know y</p>
Please recheck which temperature sensor model you're using and check the wiring.<br>
What if i replace the lcd screen with 7 segment displays?
I'll have the code forwarded to you, I've already done that project.<br>For assembling the stuff, check out my other instructable in which I've used 2 seven segment displays.<br>
<p>Yo! Buddy I'm Ritik....I'm Also 15. Well this is a nice instructable...Really enjoyed it.</p><p>But you could have used Backlight for the LCD,that would have looked very nice.</p>
@RitikBharadwaj<br>connect the last pin on the right to GND and the 2nd last one to 3.3v(no resistor required) and the backlight would be on. I have shown it in my 3rd fritzing diagram.
<p>SIR </p><p>please send some electronics projects with their circuits hex file and equipments required at this email.... Sukhmandeol751@gmail.com</p>
Also, I'm really glad you liked it :)
