Homework Help: Modal values from an Applet

  1. Apr 4, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Using the applet linked-to below, I would like to plot a graph showing the dependence of the modal value (i.e. position of maximum) and the mean with temperature.

    Is it possible to read off modal values? Is there some means by which this can be done as there do not appear to be values on the y-axis for taking such readings.


    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Welcome to PF, Louise2012! :smile:

    With an applet like that I don't think you can simply read off values.

    If you want to take readings, the best you can do is simply measuring them off your screen with a ruler.

    Of course an additional problem is that the ranges of the scroll bars is not given.
    So you would have to calibrate them yourself based on known relations.
