for the different treatments (with the treatments on the same graph).
See([[Appendix_E/S12 |Appendix E]]).
Determine regression equations for the linear part of each data plots
to get slope (m) values (slopes represent the rates of electron transport).
Calculate the rates (change over time of the linear portion of your graphs)
and plot those values against your variable (x-axis);
