Modelling Curves

Unfortunately when you do experiments it is unusual to find that the relationship you are studying is linear. Linear relationships are nice because you can plot them, draw a line of best fit, and use y = mx + c to find an empirical equation to model the behaviour of the experiment in question.
More commonly you will need to deal with non-linear relationships. In C2 you can model curves of the form y = kx^n and y = ka^x. Examples of these forms of graph are shown below:
The graph of y = 4x^2.3 The graph of y = 3.5^x + 1.2
