Like this? This basically just what you said, so I'm not sure what your
exact question is. Is it just the use of eval that you weren't clear on?
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
eqs = [
['24 + 18.75*x + 4.79616e-013*x**2 + 31.25*x**3', 7.800, 7.600],
['28 + 22.5*x + 5.68434e-013*x**2 + 0*x**3', 8.000, 7.800],
]
for i in eqs:
xr = np.linspace(i[2], i[1], 10)
x = xr - i[2]
y = eval(i[0])
plt.plot(xr,y)
plt.show()
