I need to extract a polynomial equation from results
Posted on 2014-09-29
I have a table of values that provide volume of a cone based on a diameter measurement at the 1.3 meter height mark (volume of an evergreen tree). The creator of the table is long gone and the equation used is too. I do not have the skills to rebuild it and hope a math expert can do it for me and help solve my dilemma.
I do not have a lot to go on so some 'guess work' may be involved.
Here is a list of what I have: Diameter in centimeters and volume in cubic meters. What do I do to expand/extrapolate to 62 cm diameter to get a somewhat accurate volume?
d(cm) vol(m3)
10 0.013
12 0.027
14 0.044
16 0.064
18 0.089
20 0.118
22 0.153
24 0.193
26 0.239
28 0.290
30 0.348
32 0.416
34 0.488
36 0.572
38 0.660
40 0.761
42 0.866
44 0.980
46 1.103
