Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First of all, we'd have to figure out how much Rhodium we lose every second.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we lose 50% rhodium every second which means that it is not linear

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it wouldn't be 500/30. it would be 500/2 and then 250/2 and then 125/2 and so on

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, if you want to determine, on average, the amount of RH lost in 30 secs, you'd have to first find how much you lose each second. For that matter, you divide the total mass with the total amount of time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why would I need the average? I need to graph it so it is non linear curve. Ive already graphed it just need to get the equation for it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because we need to establish a proportion that will allow us to create the "slope" of the line that will compose that graph you wrote.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, well 500/30 is 16.666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Good. So, if we were to write a function, we would write that multiplied "x" that represents the amount of second that has passed: \[f(x)=500(16.666)x\] if we call "f(x)" as "y", we will obtain: \[y=500(16.666)x\]
