Thatís why ropes tested at 55 kg hold exponentially more falls then when tested at 80 kg.

Since there are two only data points 55 kg and 80 kg, how do you know an exponential function is involved?

r.c.
SBBW (Society for Banning Big Words).

edit: to correct SBBW as suggested by careful readers.

ex∑po∑nen∑tial

Function: adjective
Date: 1704
1: of or relating to an exponent
2: involving a variable in an exponent <10x is an exponential expression>
3: expressible or approximately expressible by an exponential function ; especially : characterized by or being an extremely rapid increase (as in size or extent) <an exponential growth rate>

For example, the Beal Joker holds 5 UIAA falls at 80 kg and 20 at 55 kg.
