Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a graph of a tensile test of a metal sample, and I wish to find the slope on the graph of only the elastic region of the graph, meaning of the entire graph, there is only one section of it that I am interested in finding the slope for.

Is there a way in excel to make it such that you only find the slope of certain data points, as opposed to the slope of the entire graph?

Thank you
