[R] barplot with a probability density curve

Dear All,

Thanks everyone for your kind responses.
Now I understand what is gong on!  I guess that the question asked is  
wrong in the first place.
As there is a categorical list of groups and their values (a range of  
pipe diameters and a flow for each diameter), and a barplot would be a  
suitable tool to use.
However, it also means that I cannot plot probability density curve  
using this type of data because I would need to have a histogram  
instead. Did I get it right?

Many thanks,
