Help!
I need to reduce these non linear equations to linear form so that they meet the form Y=mX+c
1) y=ln(ax+bx )
2)y=a/(bx +c)
3) y=1/(x-a)(x-b)
In general non-linear equations cannot be reduced or transformed into linear form. That's why they are called non-linear.
We can do two things
a) linearize these equations about some point
b) find a function of $y$ that is linear in $x$
(b) is what I suspect you want. Do you know?
the question says.....
In an experiment sets of values of the related variables (x,y) are obtained. Show how you woiuld determine whether x & y are related by a law of the form where a, b are unknown constants
1) y= ln(ax^2 + bx)
2) y= a/(bx+c)
c) y= 1/(x-a)(x-b)
