 FILE DESCRIPTION PROPERTIES AIRTEMP The air temperature as a function of the height above the earth's surface. Decreasing, Linear BEANROOT The length of the root of a bean as a function of time. Increasing, Sigmoidal CALVES The concentration of a dye in plasma in a calf as a function of time. Decreasing, Concave Up COFFEE Some students measured the temperature of coffee to see how rapidly it cooled. The coffee temperature is shown as a function of the time. Decreasing, Concave Up HALFLIFE The decay of the 64Cu isotope as a function of time. Decreasing, Concave Up JUDGE1 A subject was given some objects and asked to judge their weights where a 98 gram object was assigned the value 100. This shows the result of such an experiment. Increasing, Concave Up JUDGE2 A subject was shown a 400 sq cm square and advised that its area was assigned the number 20 units as area. The subject was then given various numbers and asked to draw a squares with those numbers as the area when compared to the 20 units area. This shows the result of such an experiment. Increasing, Concave Down MARRIED The age at which 41,000 Australian men, born in the same year, were married is shown where the second column shows the percentage of the 41,000 men who were married, while the first column shows the age at which they were married. Increasing, Sigmoidal MEMORY The average percentage memory loss as a function of time. Decreasing, Concave Up PLANETS This relates the distance of a planet from the sun to the period of the planet, the time it takes for the planet to orbit the sun, a "year". Increasing, Concave Up PUPILS1 This shows the result of an experiment in which 10 subjects were briefly exposed to a bright light, causing their pupils to dilate, and then the diameter of each pupil was measured as the pupil expanded. Increasing, Concave Down PUPILS2 This shows the result of an experiment where 10 subjects where kept in a darkened room and then brought into light, causing the pupils to dilate, and then the diameter of the pupils was measured every 1/3 sec. Decreasing, Concave Up PROBE A student held a temperature probe firmly between her thumb and forefinger while the temperature of the probe was recorded. This shows the temperature as a function of the time. Increasing, Concave Down QCKSORT Average times to sort a list of various lengths using the Quicksort algorithm. Increasing, Linear RECOGN The percentage of words remembered is shown as a function of the time elapsed since being shown the words. Decreasing, Concave Up RVALUE The thickness of the insulation material in inches as a function of the R-Value. Increasing, Linear SATIS A group of five people worked continuously for 4 hours grading papers. Every 20 minutes they were each asked to estimate "the satisfyingness or tolerability or zest or interest in the work" on a scale of 0 to 10, where 0 meant extreme distaste and 10 extreme pleasure. This shows the average satisfaction of the five as a function of the 20-minute time interval. Decreasing, Linear SHAPE The volume of a vessel as a function of its height. Increasing, Sigmoidal SPECTRUM Very high energy particles are found in the radiation belts of Earth, Jupiter, and Saturn. During Pioneer 10's flyby of Jupiter in 1973, these data were obtained. It shows the number of particles per unit time at different energies in Jupiter's radiation belt. Decreasing, Concave Up WARM The rise in temperature of the earth from the 1860 figure as a function of time since 1900. Increasing, Concave Down
