r – Error:attempt to apply non-function

r – Error:attempt to apply non-function

You’re missing *s in the last two terms of your expression, so R is interpreting (e.g.) 0.207 (log(DIAM93))^2 as an attempt to call a function named 0.207

For example:

> 1 + 2*(3)
[1] 7
> 1 + 2 (3)

Error: attempt to apply non-function

Your (unreproducible) expression should read:

censusdata_20$AGB93 = WD * exp(-1.239 + 1.980 * log (DIAM93) + 
                              0.207* (log(DIAM93))^2  -
                              0.0281*(log(DIAM93))^3)

Mathematica is the only computer system I know of that allows juxtaposition to be used for multiplication …

I got the error because of a clumsy typo:

This errors:

knitr::opts_chunk$seet(echo = FALSE)

Error: attempt to apply non-function

After correcting the typo, it works:

knitr::opts_chunk$set(echo = FALSE)

r – Error:attempt to apply non-function
