The code for this is a mix between code for CIRC04: Servo and CIRC10: Temperature. What we're doing is attaching the value for the temperature, to a value of the servo. Let's walk through some parts of it:

Inside, the loop, we're going to read in a voltage from the pin using the getVoltage() function from CIRC04. We are then going to pass this value to a new function, convertToF(), which is generated from the voltage value, to convert the voltage to a degrees Fahrenheit temperature:

  // read the voltage from the pin
  float voltage = getVoltage(temperaturePin);
  // convert the voltage to a temperature value
  float temperature = convertToF(voltage);

Then, we're going to constrain the temperature values. This is totally up to you, you can use any number, but we are using -10F and 100F as our minimum and maximum temperature accepted by the TMP36:

map((int(temperature)), -10, 100

We still need to map the temperature values to servo values. The minimum degrees a servo can move is 0 degrees and the maximum degrees is 180, so let's set the servo to map: -10 to 0 and 100 to 180:

servoPos = map((int(temperature)), -10, 100, 0, 180);

Then, write servoPos to the servo!

// write servoPos to the servo
 metroServo.write(servoPos);
 // poll every 0.5sec
 delay(500);

Here's the full code, with all the helpers built in:
