Learning Objectives Use tables and graphs as problem solving tools Learn and apply different types of graphs and scales Review graphing in Excel Edit graphs Use linear regression by hand, and in Excel.
Proper Use of Tables & Graphs Engineers record and present data in two primary formats: tables and graphs Height  H (m)  Temp  T ( ° C)  Pressure  P (kPa)       0  15.0     101.3     300  12.8  97.7     600  11.1  94.2  0 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 0 500 1000 1500 Height (m) Temperature (C) 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 140 160 Pressure (kPa) Temp Pressure

Graphs Each graph must include: Title -- a clear, concise description Legend -- defines point symbols or line types Labeled axes -- name of variable and its units. (Note: The units can be enclosed in parentheses, or separated from the label by a comma.) Graphs should always be referenced/discussed in the text.
