## Homework Statement

State what you would plot to get a straight line if experimental (x,y) data are to be

correlated by the following relations, and what the slopes and intercepts would be in

terms of the relation parameters. If you could equally well use two different kinds of plots

(e.g. rectangular or semilog), state what you could plot in each case [the solution to part

(a) is given as an example]

a) y^2=a*e^(-b/x)

solution: construct a semilog plot of y^2 vs 1/x or a plot of ln(y^2) vs 1/x on rectangular coordinates, slope = -b, intercept =lna.

c) 1/ln(y −3) = (1+ a*sqrt( x))/b

e) y = exp(a sqrt(x) +b)

g) y=(ax+b/x)^(-1)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm really confused about this. I tried looking in the book, but I couldn't find anything. I feel like the answer should be pretty easy, but I'm just not getting it. If you could help me with one of the questions it should definitely help me solve the other ones. Thanks in advance!
