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:
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.
