Introduction to EngineeringLinear & Logarithmic Scales

Agenda

Linear & Logarithmic Scales

Linear vs. Linear Plot

Log-Log Plot

Semi-log (log v. linear) plot

- Engineers often collect large amounts of data
- Two common ways to analyze the data are:
- Write an equation to fit the data.
- Graph the data.

- Plotting data with appropriate scales can be very helpful in display of data and interpretation
- Choosing the right scale can make the appear on a straight line
- Choosing the right scale allows you to plot data ranging over several orders of magnitude on a single page.

Linear axis:

Logarithmic axis:

- Temperature Expansion
- Linear Y = mX + B

- Wind Force
- Power Equation Y = bXm

- Population Growth
- Y = bemX

L = a (T – To) + Lo

L = a (dT) + Lo

(Form : Y = mX + b)

- Wind Force on a Sign F = P A
- P = 0.0036 V2
- F = 0.0036 V2 A

- Where
- P = pressure in lb/ft2
- V = velocity in ft/sec

- (Form Y = bXm)

Y = bemXLinear Form: ln Y = ln b + m XY* = m X + b
