Temperature Indicator Schematic Diagram

Parts List:
    R1 = 10K                    IC1 = CA3240E
    R2 = Thermistor      Led1,2,3,4 = Led's of your choice
 R3-R7 = 5K                     BZ1 = Buzzer, 6V
R8-R11 = 220 ohm                 B1 = battery, 9V

This circuit sets off a buzzer after the last Led (led4) is lit.  It is a 
simple but fun circuit to experiment with.  You can replace the buzzer with 
something else, add a trimpot to adjust sensitivity, etc, etc. The possibilities 
are endles.

The CD3240E IC may in some cases be difficult to obtain.
