## Homework Statement

This is actually a part of my physics lab assignment, but there isn't any physics involved here, so I chose to post this here. I hope that isn't a problem.

Anyway, I've been given three data tables, and have been asked to make graphs for each of the data tables by hand. After doing so,

**I'm tasked to find the function for each graph**, also being tasked with finding the relationships between the values that compose the function.

Here is one of those tables:

## Homework Equations

For linear functions: y = Bx + A

For power functions: log y = n log x + log A

For exponential functions: ln y = Bx + ln A

## The Attempt at a Solution

I did actually graph the data first, with reactance as my independent variable (in the x-axis) and frequency as my dependent variable, and I'm guessing it's not an exponential function, just based on appearance.

I then tried plugging in my y values into power function equation, but I don't know how to derive the exponent n, or the coefficient A from that equation (assuming a power function relationship even exists in this case).

I'm hoping to get some direction here, so I can start on the other two data sets that I've also graphed.
