Lab Math 6BL August 7, 2018 1 Introduction Below is a table of data taken by a student in an upper division physics lab course. She was curious about electronic noise in her measurements. She noticed one day that as she increase the DC current running through her instrument, the AC current noise would also increase. In an attempt to find the relationship between the DC current and the AC current noise she varied the DC current ( I DC ) and measured the AC noise ( I AC ). Note the units in the table below. They have prefixes that are very important. I DC ( μ A) I AC (pA) 12.8 2.19 20.1 2.69 24.9 3.01 29.9 3.27 35.0 3.50 40.2 3.74 44.9 3.87 55.1 4.36 60.1 4.54 64.9 4.71 70.2 4.85 73.6 4.97 2 Logarithm Review She suspects the relationship to be of the form: I AC = cI n DC (1) Where c and n are unknown constants she would like to determine. If she were to plot all the data she has collected so far, she would see the AC current noise increase somehow with DC current but how would she determine if it was linear, quadratic, root, or something else entirely?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
