[R] Generating random data with non-linear correlation between two variables

Hi All,

I am new to R and don't know how to achieve it.

I am interested in generating a hypothetical dataframe that is consisted of say two variables named v1 and v2, based on the following constraints:
1. The range of v1 is 500-1500.
2. The mean of v1 is say 1100
3. The range of v2 is 300-950.
4. The mean of v2 is say 400
5. There exists a positive trend between these two variables, meaning that as v1 increases, v2 be also increase.
6. But the trend should be slightly non-linear. i.e., curved line.

Is it possible to automatically generate through functions like rnorm.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Many Thanks and

Kind Regards
