Finding a relationship between functions

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

I posted on this tangent a little while ago but I've moved forward and was looking for some input.
I have two exponential equations each is described by a different variable (n and v respectively):

y=1.44E-24*exp(46.22n)+2.006E-8
y=2.88*exp(-2.4v)-3.009E-5

Since the end constants are so small I am considering them negligible so:

y=1.44E-24*exp(46.22n)
y=2.88*exp(-2.4v)

What I am trying to find is a relationship between variables n and v.

Currently I've tried taking the natural log of both sides to get:

ln(y)=ln(1.44E-24)+ln(exp(46.22n))
ln(y)=-54.897+56.22n
and
ln(y)=ln(2.88)+ln(exp(-2.4v))
ln(y)=1.058-2.4v

So in essence I now have two linear equations. Are there any suggestions to finding a numerical relationship between n and v. Is there value in finding the intersection of these two linear equations?

Thanks
C.N.

If you don't mind me saying so, there is something odd in you asserting that things of the order 10^-5 are negligible, but that 10^-24 isn't.

y=something
y=something else

therefore something equals something else. That is a relation ship. It just isn't of the (unjustifiable preferred?) v=function of n.
