Homework Help: Quick question on plotting graph/stuff

  1. Mar 11, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Hi there
    I have got my pratical tomorrow anyhow there is one thing of which i am bit iffy about. I am given a question where it asks me to plot graph with given data and error bars as well.Next question asks me to draw two lines (a line of steepest and least steep ) through the origin or wherever it starts.Would i plot both lines by having them going through my error bars or how?is this true method to draw both of the extreme lines?
    Note:The actual graph is a smooth continuous curvature.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    More or less that's the idea.

    I don't see how or why you should have to draw a straight line (with gradient to be estimated) through a set of points that is a smooth curve.
    Is it supposed to be a curve; or has it come out looking that way but should really be a straight line?
