In order to be able to clearly create an efunction, 3 data points are required. But Mars only has 2 moons. Since both moons orbit Mars relatively close, the surface of Mars can be used as a third value. The entire situation is given in the following table.

When logarithmized and transferred to a diagram, a surprising simplification results. The logarithmic values ??are already so linear that further linearization is no longer necessary. 
Abbildung 8.3.6 – Linearization
As before, the efunction can be determined from this.
The equation for the approximation line is:
y = ln R = 0.9963·x + 10,407 The following applies to the orbits of the moon: R = 33096·e^{0.9663·x} [Km]
