Fluid Mechanics Laboratory Video: Least Squares and Curve Fitting

The second video for the Fluid Mechanics Laboratory, concerning least squares and curve fitting.

The text version of this lecture is here: Least Squares Analysis and Curve Fitting.

Important note: one topic that isn’t covered in the video lecture is multiple independent variables. It is covered in the handout; however, this is one of those times when a job is best left to someone else, and a video on how to use the spreadsheet LINEST function to accomplish this is here: Using LINEST for Least Squares Regression With More Than One Independent Variable.
