Refer to the American Journal of Physics (June 2010) study of sound waves in a spherical cavity, Exercise. The frequencies of sound waves (estimated using a mathematical formula) resulting from the first 24 resonances (echoes) after striking a basketball with a metal rod are reproduced in the table in the next column. (The data are saved in the BBALL file.) Graph the data in a scatterplot, with frequency on the vertical axis and resonance number on the horizontal axis. Since a mathematical formula was used to estimate frequency, the researcher expects an increasing trend with very little variation. Does the graph support the researcher’s theory?
