Physics IA (how to plot a straight line graph from negative curve)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

So from my experimental data I have plotted a negative curve and my best fit has an equation y = (0.5/x) + 2. Now in order to do max/min lines and find the uncertainty in the gradient, I have to somehow make this a straight line graph. What do I have to plot against what to make it a straight line?

Thanks

Hello sir, so y +0.5/x, is the same thing as y =0.5x^-1,

You must change your x values to 1/x! and then plot y against 1/x!

For example if you have a value of 10, change it to 0.1

My work here is done.

Good day sir.
