It should be linear. It's your first graph with the axes flipped.

And yes, m = 5*(1/d) + 0, or (1/d) = 0.2*m + 0. (Don't forget the units, though!)

Yes, thanks I do know that!

What units would it be? and what would be my mathematical relationship between M(coin) and d for the linear graph?

My non-linear graphs relationship was M is proportional 1/d

So, m is in, what grams? Or kilograms?
1/d is in $cm^{-1}$?

Now, what units would the other two numbers have to have in order for all the terms to be consistent (have the same units)?

Mass is in grams, d is in cm so I guess 1/d is in cm^-1

are you saying that 0.0161 in grams?

What do you have to multiply by $cm^{-1}$ to get $g$?

No. Is it cm^-1 than? I'm confused

$\displaystyle m = \left( 0.0162~ g\cdot cm \right) \frac{1}{d} + \left( 0.016~ g \right) $

Now, for example, let's say $\displaystyle d = 10~ cm$. Your equation gives
$\displaystyle m = \left( \frac{0.0162~g\cdot cm}{10~cm} \right) + \left( 0.016~g \right) = (0.00162~g)+(0.016~g) \approx 0.0176~g$


Believe it or not, I have third-year engineering students who struggle with getting units correct on things like this, so don't feel too bad.

how Do I relate this to torque?

The last equation in your attachment looks an awful lot like the equation of your line, right? If you rearrange them, they should be the same.

Incidentally, look at your scenario and define what is D. Is it a constant, or does it depend on d? If so (for example, maybe D=L-d, where L is a constant?), then rewrite it that way.

Maybe this attachment will help? I'm not sure what D is.

last thing I want to know is how do I can compare my results to the theory using that formula?
