    If given a data set and asked to determine whether there is an exponential relationship between the data, how do you do this???

    For example:

    Q13.a) http://physics.taskermilward.org.uk/...tion_paper.pdf

    Q3.a) http://physics.taskermilward.org.uk/...tion_paper.pdf

    Q13.d)ii) http://physics.taskermilward.org.uk/...tion_paper.pdf

    Any help would be much appreciated!!

    You're probably familiar with thinking about half life when you're considering exponential change e.g. the number of undecayed nuclei halving in a constant period, halving again in a period equal to the first etc. etc.
    well there's nothing special about one half, if you count the number of undecayed nuclei at any regular interval the ratio between the current count and the previous count would be a constant value.
