Hello,
I'm having some trouble differentiating a curve I have. I don't really understand the command but I've got a plot of the Density in a lake and I need to find the derivative at a certain point. I've fit a ninth order polynomial to it but it's a horrbile fit, yet nothing else gets close and I need this to use this for the 'differentiate' command.

If anyone knows a little about this would you please give me a little guidance.

Thanks heaps

Peta
