 The equation for the calibration straight line, y = bx + a, was obtained .... Explanation:The calibration curve, in this particular case is a straight line, and this is its equation: y = bx + a y and x are the coordinates, b is the slope of the traight line and a is the ordinate at the origin (value of y when x = 0) For a good explanation about this, visit the site of the reference. It has lots of illustrations.--------------------------------------------------Note added at 2003-08-30 22:01:27 (GMT)--------------------------------------------------Typo: \"b is the splope of the Straight line\". Also, there should have been a comma after \"in this particular case\", first line of the explanation.
