Is all function a equvalence relation?

    I know that function is a type of relation. What i acctually need to know is that; Are these relations Equivalent all the times?, or it depends on the types of function?

    Well, what do you think yourself?? Take an arbitrary function such as [itex]f:\mathbb{R}\rightarrow \mathbb{R}x\rightarrow x^2[/itex]. Does this induce an equivalence relation??
