Plotting a Position Time Graph

  1. Sep 16, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Plot your position-time info on a graph. Draw a smooth curve that fits the data closely

    2. Relevant equations
    t(s)---D(mm)(Position Data)
    0.00---0mm
    0.20---18mm
    0.40---37mm
    0.60---58mm
    0.80---82mm
    1.00---101mm
    1.20---115mm


    3. The attempt at a solution
    I am not sure but is it asking for a curve of best fit because when i plotted the points it looked more linear than curved

    Yes, it looks kind of linear, but not quite. You can not use a straight line fit. The curve is subtle.
