Physics IA - Linearizing (an Inverse Exponent fit?)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!


Like many other students now, I'm trying to finish up all of my IAs before the mocks and eventually finals these next few months. However, I am stuck as how to linearize my data... my teacher wanted me to try first before any additional help will be handed out/I use a complicated formula I found online. I've seen many Youtube videos, past questions etc. but none of them seemed to be the shape of my graph :(


My experiment is the singing wine glass experiment, where I measure the frequency produced when varying the amount of water inside the glass:

(copy pasted the table didn't seem to work to well either, sorry)

Volume (m3) - Mean Frequency (Hz) ± 10Hz

0 ± 0.0000100 - 662

0.0000500 ± 0.0000005 - 655

0.0001000 ± 0.0000010 - 648

0.0001500 ± 0.0000015 - 641

0.0002000 ± 0.0000020 - 607

0.0002500 ± 0.0000025 - 548

0.0003000 ± 0.0000030 - 485

0.0003500 ± 0.0000035 - 401

0.0004000 ± 0.0000040 - 327


Attached is the graph created with Logger Pro.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
