Find the Relationship: An Exercise in Graphing Analysis

Introduction

In several laboratory investigations you do this year, a primary purpose will be to find the mathematical relationship between two variables. For example, you might want to know the relationship between the pressure exerted by a gas and its temperature. In one experiment you do, you will be asked to determine the relationship between the volume of a confined gas and the pressure it exerts. A very important method for determining mathematical relationships in laboratory science makes use of graphical methods.

Objectives

In this experiment, you will determine several mathematical relationships using graphical methods.
