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

I am not sure how to solve this:

given a plot of power p(t) and current i(t), I am supposed to come up with a plot of voltage v(t). I know that p(t) = i(t)*v(t). The problem is that p(t) waveform is a parabola, while i(t) is linear. Does that mean I have to divide (long division) p(t) equation by i(t) equation and plot the result? Is there an easier way to do it just from looking at the graphs?

What if one of them is a trig. function? Is software the only way?

Thanks in advance.
