Alter the axes on a plot to better represent the data.
Explore the relationship between the pressure and temperature of mercury vapor by adjusting the scales of the axes of a plot.
Import the data
Retrieve sample data from the Wolfram Data Repository:
Visualize the data
Plot the data to visualize the relationship using linear scales on both axes:
The relationship between temperature and pressure appears to be nonlinear, so a different scale can be used to get a better visualization.
Change the plot to log scale
This visualization more clearly shows the relationship between pressure and temperature, but it does not show the whole picture.
Change the plot to log-log scale
Use scaling functions for both axes:
This visualization more clearly shows the general relationship between temperature and pressure.
