Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Whats the difference between a linear and a nonlinear function?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A linear is a straight line that can be made on a graph and a nonlinear is not straight

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would say its nonlinear, but i dont know.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah, but what makes it linear, TT?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if the dependent variable is only to the 1st power, it's linear if it's to a higher power, it's nonlinear. what is the exponent on h, the height?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh, so squared and cubic stuff are nonlinear?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2exactly so what about h inopeki?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1anikate, since r is to the power of 2 its nonlinear.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2but they ask about the relation to the height, so since h is to the first, this is a linear relationship if they asked about the relation to the radius you would be right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yeah sometimes you gotta be careful reading the question good job understanding!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[V= f(h)= 9 \pi h\] in this case pi r^2 acts like a constant and the volume varies linearly with h
