The way i read it is that the drop in results against the increase of X makes it exponential decay?

Or am i missing the point.

What happens if the results decay slightly when on log paper? (which they do)

Thanks, have checked out that site and no wiser lol

Edited by:"chesso" 16th Apr 2011no, it will be a curved line as per the graphical evidence above ^^^^^

Edited by:"mds1256" 16th Apr 2011If will be a sloped line but depends on base of logs most people will assume natural logs (2.7 odd) as it's whats mostly found in science.
