Log-linear Analysis

  1. Mar 28, 2007 #1
    I need to graph a relationship that is the combination of 2 exponential functions on log-linear graph paper.

    I have: V = Cexp(-t/B) + Aexp(-t/S)

    If it were simply V = Cexp(-t/B) then this wouldnt be a problem (by graphing log(V) = (-1/B)log(e)t + log(C) ) but I need to determine both the B and S parameters (possibly from the same graph). How can i do this?

    If t=ln(s), then V is linear in s...

    Plot V vs. s.
