Homework Help: Curve Fitting Data

  1. Apr 13, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    This is not homework, just a personal project. I do not know if this is the correct section to post, sorry if it's not. I'm using a motion analysis software to track the position of a bouncing ball (y vs t). I imported the data in to Excel and the graph is attached. What type of function is this? Does it involve the geometric series? I'm trying fit the data using http://zunzun.com/. Which function should I choose? Thank you.

    2. Relevant equations
    3. The attempt at a solution

    I believe this would be an infinite geometric series.
