On this R-data statistics page, you will find information about the Formaldehyde data set which pertains to Determination of Formaldehyde. The Formaldehyde data set is found in the datasets R package. You can load the Formaldehyde data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("Formaldehyde"). This will load the data into a variable called Formaldehyde. If R says the Formaldehyde data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("datasets") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the Formaldehyde R data set. The size of this file is about 76 bytes.
