SPEED/STRIDE LENGTH RELATIONSHIP FOR HUMANS: We can approximate the relationship between speed and stride length for humans from the speed and stride length data on the previous page. The simplest way to do this is to plot these data on a standard orthogonal (XY) grid. You can do this by making your own graph and plotting the data on it, or you can print out this page, and use the graph at left below. You should label each plotted point appropriately, as indicated in the sample plot, below, right; and you should fit a "best fit" line to the data. Remember that in fitting a line to the data, you are drawing a straight line that describes the trend of the three data points - you are not connecting the points with a line.
