    Hi, i need to produce an equilibrium curve from recovery points that I achieved according to my exp supervisor. I am very confused on the axis labels and what to actually plot the graph on.

    Any help would be appreciated

    You'll need to give us a bit more information about what you're trying to do - context, what the experiment is and all that. Googling "equilibrium curve" and "recovery points" gave very little information, so these don't seem to be standard terms. Alternatively, would asking in a chemistry group be more effective?

    The experiment is liquid liquid extraction and revolves around extracting a solute such as propionic acid from kerosene whilst using water as the extracting solvent.

    That's really unlikely to help someone who doesn't do chemistry (and this is a maths forum, after all).

    As Gregorius asked, what are your definitions of "equilibrium curve" and "recovery points"? It seems very unlikely you'd have been asked to do this without knowing what they are! (And if you don't know what they are, your problem definitely lies in the chemistry side of things, not the mathematics...)
