Polynomial fits not working in Colorimeter-v05

  • @Will-Dickson ... we had a discussion about this in the "Additional tests for colorimeter..." thread and I think I was able to get polynomial fits to work in May-June of 2017 after you packaged v05. But now @maddiehankard and our group at St Thomas have created another pH curve that we are playing with and v05 will only let us use a linear fit (not even a second or third order polynomial... and we need 4th order). Our x-y data are below.

  • @fisherba Thanks - I will have look this weekend.

  • @Will-Dickson Oh, silly us! The curve makes a u-shape, so we needed to drop the pH 4.74 value. Now the polynomial fitting works.

    Yes, I think that would be the issue. I'm glad you were able to get everything working.
