    Lightbulb Problems with plotting a few graphs from a formula from wikipedia

    Hi guys,

    My math skills is not that good anymore as I dont use it in my field of organic chemistry (University), and I would like your help.

    Im writing a thesis, and I would like to include some graphs, more or less identical (with minor tweaks) of some found on wikipedia; Kinetic resolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The graphs are not so far from the top, where ee is plotted as a function of conversion at different values of s.

    The text suggest that these plots are made from the formula, which is posted right above the plots;



    How do I proceed to generate my own plots? The plots on wikipedia looks very bad aesthetically.

    Some background info;
    ee and conversion varies from 0 to 1 (or 0-100%)
    Typical values of s is 2,10,20,50,100,500

    Thanks for any and all help!

    I use a simple little program called graph. It's actually got a pretty good look to it and you can save the files as jpg's (or whatever).
