1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Plot your positiontime info on a graph. Draw a smooth curve that fits the data closely 2. Relevant equations t(s)D(mm)(Position Data) 0.000mm 0.2018mm 0.4037mm 0.6058mm 0.8082mm 1.00101mm 1.20115mm 3. The attempt at a solution I am not sure but is it asking for a curve of best fit because when i plotted the points it looked more linear than curved 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution

Yes, it looks kind of linear, but not quite. You can not use a straight line fit. The curve is subtle.
