The proportion of a given heat rise that has dissipated a time t after the source is cut off is of the form P = 1 et for some unknown constant . Given the data P .07 .21 .32 .38 .40 .45 .51 t .1 .2 .3 .4 .5 .6 .7 estimate the value of . Estimate the value of t at which half of the heat rise is dissipated.

Chapter 1: Knowledge and Data Building Knowledge Step-by-Step 1. Conceptualize the problem: broadly state the problem of interest. 2. Operationalize the problem: formulate specific questions to lead towards the answer. Decide what needs to be measured and these will become our dependent variables. 3. Design the study: Decide how you will...
