The viscosity of a liquid is a measure of its resistance to flow. Its value can be found experimentally by putting a quantity of liquid between two moving parallel plates and measuring the friction force on one plate. In such an experiment, values of the coefficient of viscosity of a lubricating oil were found at different temperatures .

a) Complete the following table with the appropriate values of μ and T , working to 4 decimal places.

2.9957
-2.3167

b) It is thought that μ and T are related by an equation of the form μ =AT^m

Take natural logarithms of this equation and hence show how your graph can be used to estimate the values of A and m.

What computer applications can be used to graph systems of equations? Have you ever personally used any applications to graph an equation? In what circumstances does it make more sense to graph a system than to use the substitution, elimination, or matrix methods?

There are many applications used in the area of solving systems of equations. For example, systems of equations can be used to find the optimal number of items to produce to ensure the highest profit of those particular items. Systems of equations can be solved by four methods: graphing, substitution, elimination or with matrice

The number of arrests y of a city over a period of time x is graphed on a rectangular coordinate system. Write a paragraph describing your interpretation when the slope is positive, zero, and negative. If you were buying a home in this particular city, which slope would be most attractive to you and why?

Tickets for a concert was sold to adults for $3 and to students for $2. Total receipts were $824 and if twice as many adult tickets as student tickets were sold, how many of each type of ticket was sold?

For a farm commodity, rye grain in 2002, the price-demand and price supply equations are given by:
price - demand equation p= -0.01x + 26.38
price - supply equation p= 0.005x - 9.02
where price is dollars per bushel, and x is in billions of bushels.
a. find the quantity of grain supplied at equilibrium.
b. Find the pr

For this SLP I want you to create a system of linear equations from your own life, it can be an extension of your module 2 SLP or something new entirely. Keep in mind that a system of linear equations will consist of two equations using the same variables and the variables will represent the same thing for both equations, i.e.,

1. Determine which of the following are linear equations and which are not linear equations. State the reason for your answer.
(a) x + y = 1000
(b) 3xy + 2y + 15z - 20 = 0
(c) 2xy + 4yz = 8
(d) 2x + 3y 4z = 6.
