## Homework Statement

Linearize the following equation:

[tex]\dfrac{1}{r} = (\dfrac{2g(\rho - \rho\prime)}{9\eta})(\dfrac{r}{v_{0}}) - \dfrac{K}{R}[/tex]

Here, v

_{0}is the observed velocity dependent upon r, and we are trying to get η and K somewhere in the intercept and slope. So we will try out different r's, calculate the observed velocity and then plot the graph.

I don't see what we are supposed to do to get a linear graph. Take some kind of logarithm?

## The Attempt at a Solution

Well, the equation itself doesn't look linear to me, but I don't see what we are supposed to do to get a linear graph. Rearranging it won't do the trick, so do we need to take the logarithm?
