Starting with your equation
Take the log of both sides
Sort out the right hand side a bit
and a bit more
You've now got it in the form .
Are you OK from there?
was looking for some advice and assistance on a particular question if at all possible. I'm looking to solve the following:
results were collected in an experiment to find the relationship between the luminosity (I) of a lamp and the voltage (V). The law is thought to be of the type I=aVn
Now I need to plot Log I (Vertically) against Log V (Horizontally) and find the values of A and N. The data is below.
V 40 60 80 100 120
I 5.1 26.0 82 200 414
Any tips on how I go about solving this will be greatly appreciated.
I'll look forward to reading your replys,
Would anyone be able to advise me with what I need to do with the log functions?
now its in the form of y=mx+c I assume I create my graph with the results obtained and then use this to find the values of m and c which equate to a and n.
In summary do the log functions change anything and if they do in what way.
Many thanks for any help received.
