    ignore my above post


    your intercept of 0.302 is correct. zacken watch out intercept of -0.2 is where x = approx (-1), not where x = 0

    see the x axis labels


    anyway the second reason you were not getting the correct value of g is because of the base.

    Now that you have 0.302 as your intercept, you need to be taking 10 to the 0.302, not e to the 0.302

    so with 10^0,302 = 2pi/sqrtg

    you can solve to get g correct to 2 s.f.

    Zacken is way above that. He's just tired!

    I would say you guys are both god tier. I would like to become god tier myself one day.

    Looking back now i see the equation that Zacken posted which i cant understand why square root g became the denominator of 2pi. Can you guys explain the process of that? I reworked the equation again and got the below answer.

    Careful in your working. Remember if you're going to make it a -log(P) you can't take the exponent to be negative as well. It's one or the other in this case (referring to your second line)

    No need to take the half out of the log

    Since you have

    LogT = Log2PI + 0.5LogL - Log(g^0.5)

    Now using the log rule of LogA - LogB = Log(A/B)

    You can get

    LogT = Log(2PI/g^0.5) + 0.5LogL

    My pleasure and thank you :blush:

    You should see Zacken's maths help though.. He gets anything pure.. Literally everything

    If you ever need pure maths help, he's your man!
