If you obtain a line within uncertainty, the theory is NOT CONFIRMED . d) The functions are t 2 and z 3 . If you obtain a line within uncertainty, the theory is CONFIRMED . e) The functions are sin( t ) and z 3 . If you obtain a line within uncertainty, the theory is NOT CONFIRMED 001 qmult 02100 1 5 3 easy thinking: plotting tan( x ) linearly 56. Given y 2 = a tan( x ) + b , identify the new variables y new and x new that reduce the equation to the equation of a line, y new = ax new + b . a) y and cos( x ). b) y 3 and cos( x ). c) y 2 and tan( x ). d) y and tan( x ). e) y and x . 001 qmult 02200 2 5 1 moderate thinking: plotting a square root linearly 57. Given y = 2 π radicalbig ax/h + b (where a , h , and b are constants), identify the new variables y new and x new , and the new constants c 1 and c 2 that reduce the equation to the equation of a line, y new...
