Page 88 – Incorrect Calculation

2.7.5.3 Calculating Analog In Voltage

The second sentence in the first paragraph of section 2.7.5.3 on page 88, reads as follows:

On the Arduino MEGA 2560 we know that the default reference voltage is 5V, so the calculation becomes 1024 ÷ 5 × <analog value read on pin> = voltage.

The part shown in bold above is incorrect, it should be 5 ÷ 1024 which is how it is shown in the sketch that follows – the sketch that follows is correct. The sentence should therefore read as follows:

On the Arduino MEGA 2560 we know that the default reference voltage is 5V, so the calculation becomes 5 ÷ 1024 × <analog value read on pin> = voltage.
