I have to find the slope of an exponential curve by using log identities.

Using basic values such as:

(10, 0.692)

(30, 1.082)

(70, 1.579)

2. Relevant equations

The equation is in the form T=Cm^p

So the log function is logT=logC + Plog(m) right?

3. The attempt at a solution

When I take the log of (10, 0.692) I end up with negative values, which is completely non-sensical when compared to my experimental values!

I end up with function -.6x^.4

when I should get .3x^.4
