Here are some graphs of physical processes.
 

   
   
   
   


Can you suggest plausible processes that could have given rise to each graph?

Now click on the link below to see eight processes that give rise to the graphs.
Can you match each process to a graph?
 
PROCESSES



Can you suggest equations that could model each of these processes?

Now click on the link below to see eight equations.
Can you match each equation to the graphs and related processes?

EQUATIONS



Extension
Can you determine values for the constants A, B and C for each equation? For some, you will need to make some assumptions.
