# Please, Let me know this approximation

$$N_v = 0.5(t^{2}+2t^{6/7})\ln(1+2t^{-8/7})-t^{6/7} \tag{1}$$ $$N_v =(0.871+0.125\ln t)^2 \tag{2}$$ Eq(2) is the approximated version of Eq(1). Does anyone know how to derive (2) from (1)? I'd appreciate your intuiton.

Are you sure these equations are well given?, because if my calculations are correct the 1st one doesn't verify the 2nd. –  johan paul Nov 16 '11 at 17:16
For what range of $t$ is this approximation supposed to hold? –  JavaMan Nov 16 '11 at 17:18
i think range of t is 0.001<t<1 –  angbong Nov 17 '11 at 3:46

The two formulas are pretty close (within about .03) for $t$ in an interval from about $.0002$ to $0.54$. But there doesn't seem to be any obvious sense in which the second is a best approximation of the first.
