Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have the results from an experiment I carried out and basically I have a formula with 2 unknown variables in it, and 6 sets of data. Because this data is from an experiment it isn't perfect and I was wondering about the method that determines the value of the 2 constants that would best fit the data.

(to elaborate, I was plugging an AC waveform into a circuit with an inductor and measuring the current and voltage - from this I got the impedance and the frequency. Since Z^2 = R^2+X^2 where X = inductive reactance, I want to find the best fitting value of R and L with 6 sets of data for Z and the frequency of the oscillator (since X=2pifL)

Cheers,

Zachary.
