(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I was wondering if someone could aid me in finding a general equation for this data. In my physics lab we had to drop a small steel ball over a steel bounce plate and record the range from the base of the bounce plate that it went. This was done 18 times from several heights and then averaged. I know I need to take into account the coefficient of restitution, what else should I take account of and do you have any suggestions about how to get a good equation going through this data.

Any suggestions? Thanks

I've included a graph of the data below
