(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

dN/dt, is proprotional to the number of nuclei present, N.

How would you linearize data that you collected?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm confused about what the data would look like. Would I be given something like N = 4, or N=4t?

To graph it so it comes out as a straight line, would I take the derivative of N and plot that against dN/dt? Or do I plot N vs t?
