How to | Plot Functions of One Variable

Mathematica offers multiple ways of plotting functions of one variable. These include ordinary plots, log plots, parametric plots, and polar plots.

Plot the function :

In[86]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[86]=
    

Plot several functions:

In[87]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[87]=
    

Plot the function on a log-scaled vertical axis:

In[88]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[88]=
    

Plot the function on a log-scaled horizontal axis:

In[89]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[89]=
    

Plot the function on log-scaled vertical and horizontal axes:

In[90]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[90]=
    

Plot the parametric curve defined by :

In[91]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[91]=

Use ParametricPlot3D to plot the parametric curve defined by :

In[92]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[92]=
    

Make a polar plot of the function :

In[93]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[93]=

Use ContourPlot to plot an implicitly defined function:

In[94]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[94]=
