Curve fit equation of the form:
log10 y = a+b(log10T) + c(log10T) 2 + d(log10T) 3 + e(log10T) 4 + f(log10T) 5 + g(log10T) 6 + h(log10T) 7 + i(log10T) 8


Solves as:
y = 10
a+b(log10T) + c(log10T) 2 + d(log10T) 3 + e(log10T) 4 + f(log10T) 5 + g(log10T) 6 + h(log10T) 7 + i(log10T) 8

Where: Coefficients a - i are summarized in the appropriate table and T is the temperature in K (x-axis), and y is the property to solve for.
