  1. What type of curve? As in what are you graphing..? It's impossible to tell without that bit of info! :)

  2. I am graphing temperature vs volume. Temperature-horizontal axis, Volume-vertical axis.

  3. Still difficult to decide on the experiment. Perhaps you could give a little more detail. Is the horizontal temp axis at zero volume?

  4. so we did a chemistry lab to find the relationship between temperature and volume or charle's law. In the experiment, i got t1v1=372K, 267.2 cm^3
    t2v2=277K,169.1 cm^3
    so i graphed that
    THen they told us to chose 2 other points from that line, TaVa and TbVb and find its K value.
    i chose TaVa=200, 70
    TbVb=240,110
    then k value of TaVa=0.35
    K value of TbVb=0.46
    Then they asked what does the point at which your curve crosses the horizontal axis represent?

    Notice that the curve given by the parametric equations x=25−t^2 y=t^3−16t is symmetric about the x-axis. (If t gives us the point (x,y),then −t will give (x,−y)). At which x value is the tangent to this curve horizontal?
