## Homework Statement

The following link shows the variation of vapor pressure with temperature. In which way the data should be plotted to obtain a straight line?

## The Attempt at a Solution

For this, I need to know exactly the mathematical relationship which I can't seem to find anywhere. Anyways, my immediate guess would be that the graph is an exponential function. So plotting the graph of lnP vs T would give me a straight line but the correct answer is lnP vs 1/T. I'm sure I'm missing something here.
