I　curious　about the Nearest-neighbor method .

I get the deltaH and deltaS  but when I put this 2 parameter in the  formula I got a very small numer than the correct answer .

Can someone teach me how to count　?

this is my primer : GCTAGTTCAACGTCAAGTGTG

Enthalpy : -167 cal/mol

Entropy : -455.9 cal/mol-K

I use this fumula

Tm = delta H / (delta S + 1.99 x ( ln(c/4)) - 273.15 = 87.14 C

Tm = (-167 ) / ( -455.9 + 1.99 x ln(c/4)) - 273.15 = －272.8

87.14(correct)

-272.15(my answer)

where c is  probe concentration.  In this case  0.1

Can someone teach me how to count　? thx!

It's because the enthalpy unit is not cal/mol but kcal/mol. So, instead of 167, the value should be 167000.
