Question:

Find a numerical value for g based on this table using excel. (The function is x = 0.5gt^2 where g represents gravity and t represents time).

Table:

Distance, (x) Time, (s)

0.1 .148

0.2 .196

0.3 .244

0.4 .290

I don’t know how to go about doing this with excel and how I’d estimate the value of g. Maybe taking the ln of both sides or something?
