Project -1 Parsing NASA thermodynamic data

Objective:

NASA came up with polynomials that can be used to evaluate thermodynamic properties such as Cp, H and S using polynomials. They have also documented the co-efficients that are required to evaluate these polynomials for 1000+ species. The program that can read the high and low temperature data from the given data…
