OS X V10.7 Lion :: Plot A Log Graph Using Grapher With A Given Set Of Data

Apr 24, 2012

im just wondering is it possible to plot a log graph in the grapher software with a given set of data, and also give an error bar and a best-fit line for it?

so here is the set of data, Concentration of BCh (M)Mean % Specific Binding (%)Standard Deviation 3 ×10⁻⁹71.529.521 ×10⁻⁸57.308.563 ×10⁻⁸39.159.401 ×10⁻⁷24.1310.153 ×10⁻⁷14.773.311 ×10⁻⁶7.222.02

I have been trying to plot a simple line graph in excel 2008, using two columns, one with my x values and one with my corresponding Y values. However I cannot do it..it will not let me put the data together but rather has two separate lines for each column...or it will have all points in a straight vertical line...i am really confused on why it is so difficult to make a simple graph

I'm having a small problem in Grapher. I'm supposed to graph a set of data points for a project, which I have done, but when I export the graph as an image, the data points aren't there. I think this might have to do with getting rid of the line connecting them (which I am not supposed to have). Is there a way to keep the data points visible in the exported image?

I was just wondering if anybody else noticed that the examples in Grapher.app use the wrong name for one of them. They have the Lorenz Attractor, only they call it the "Lorentz's Attractor." They credit Hendrik Lorentz, the dutch physicist known for his work in electromagnetism and [now] for his transformations used in Special Relativity. The Lorenz Attractor was done by Edward Norton Lorenz, the meteorologist who accidentally discovered chaos theory.

I'm trying to find out how to use the application "Grapher", but I find it difficult! It's easy for me to draw the graph by telling the program which equation I want it to draw, but I don't know how to and whether it is possible to draw something manually in the graph, for example the slope.

I have been using Matlab and Excel to plot graphs for academic papers. While both are good applications for plotting simple graphs with 3 or less curves in each graph, I run out of line styles and color when I try to plot many curves on the same graph. The situation is worsen when it is required that all the curves be in black and white. Do you know of good applications (freeware and commercial) that allow can provide nice looking graphs with lots of choices of line styles?

Does anyone use grapher? I have never been able to figure out if there is in fact a way to turn on the axis labels x,y,z and possibly get some values on the axes as well. Anyone ever been able to do this?

I'm currently working with cylindrical coordinates (r, theta, z), and I decided to test some simple graphs before I began working. The first graph I tested was r = 3 which should have yielded a cylinder, but I got a sphere instead as if I had graphed the equation in spherical coordinates! I decided to create a point set to see whether the app could plot cylindrical coordinates correctly by creating points with r = 3, and the points seemed to form a cylinder. So apparently, grapher can plot correctly in cylindrical coordinates, but not graph.

I try to connect my soundcard motu 896 MK3 to the firewire plug and my computer doesn't recognize it. When i check on the apple menu/about this mac/more info/firewire it says that it can't figure out what hardware is connected. If i plugg another device through the same firewire plugg then it works.

here's my problem, the 3d graphs in keynote look cool, but the categories at the x axis are unreadable. I want to turn this . I can do this in the 2d version and in the 3D version from powerpoint, but I cant find it in keynote?

In Pages, I need to put a line graph into a document, but I can't get it to look the way I want. Is it possible to put the labels on the y-axis, with the numbers along the x-axis? I have all the data in the graph, but it's just not oriented correctly; and the orientation in important for the class this document is for.

I'm currently trying to create some graphs in Excel, and the data isn't plotting as I would like it to be - not sure if there is something I am doing wrong here or if there is a setting to change. My data goes like this:

Mass (g)Average Period (s) 502.074 752.089 1002.110 1252.111

and I would like mass on the x-axis and average period on the y-axis. However, my graph is placing both values on the y-axis and placing a key beside the graph. The graph and the way I have set out the data are attached below.

I'm trying to create a chart on excel 08 that for the following type of data: A X Y 1 a 4 1 b 5 1 c 8 2 d 4 2 e 7 2 f 6 3 g 4 3 h 7 3 i 2

The graph has column X on the X-axis and Y on the y-axis. Is there a way graph the means of the Y column for each of the groups in column A (1's, 2's, 3's)?

Im creating a Pyramid graph. Im using Microsoft word for macs. I can't seem to enlarge my final product to fit page size. adding a second smart graph (circular arrows). I need the pyramid to be the background and insert the arrows within the pyramid without interfering with the text.

cannot find the solution. Im currently working on a simple graph, i.e. year vs population (bar or pie). I would like to show the actual value as labels of the bars/pies..I know this is very simple in windows but I dont know in mac yet.

I need to make a very, very simple line graph. In column A, I have a list of years. In column B, I have the data....numbers that correspond to something in that year. Simple, right? It really couldn't be any less complex. I selected both columns, then I went to create a new line graph, and it created a graph that had the years (from 0-2500 even though the actual range is 1973-2005) on the Y axis, and the data on the X axis. And each column of data was its own series, so I had 2 lines, which, due to the scales, was basically 2 horizontal lines. I removed the extra series (the year series), and was able to get the line to look right. It also put the column B data on the Y axis like I want, but on the X axis, it just counts from 1-33. But I want the years on the X axis. How the hell do I do this? I'm 99% positive Excel 2004 let you set the X axis labels.....did they really remove it in 2008? This seems like something that should be so simple, I shouldn't have to post on a forum to figure out

I am trying to paste link a graph from excel into powerpoint. The paste link option is not available. I also tried to paste link the data from the spreadsheet part of excel to the graph slide type in powerpoint so it can create the graph. The spreadsheet in excel is formula driven so it pastes with ref errors.

I have a new wk 11 MBA 1.6/80g. I've been reading threads on CPU heat and core shutdown. I'm trying to decide whether I need to return my sys for an exchange. Other than heat/shutdown issues my MBA is awesome. Excellent fit and finish, no dead pixels, lid alignment is perfect, etc. When playing HD vid at full screen with my desktop background randomly changing at 5 sec intervals the vid stuttered some and I saw one of my cores intermittently shutting down. However, I learned to stop the stuttering by making my desktop background static. I was thrilled. I could overload the system with two vids playing simultaneously and watch my core temp go to 84/85C with some stuttering on the vids and some intermittent core shutdown. Finally the temp settled to mid 70's. However, I later noticed that I was having periodic core shutdown at 69C. This seems way low for a core to be shutting down.

Ambient temp for my room has consistently been 70F through all of my tests. As I type this message my core usage is very low, temp is 47C. My activity graph shows intermittent periods of both cores having no activity. How can the graph show no periodic activity on each core while I type this? I thought core shutdown was when the core shows no activity for some period of time. Perhaps periods of inactivity which really indicate core shutdown could be different as compared to very low demands on the CPU's? But, am I misreading core shutdown? Is my unit defective? Is excellent fit and finish/build quality the norm for MBA? I don't want to exchange and have dead pixels or a warped lid, etc. I would rather open the unit and mess with thermal paste but I can't see it correcting core shutdown at low temps under heavy load. I purchased this MBA on Saturday.

I have to use computer generated graphs of equations for my calculus class and am in need of a program similar to the Winplot for Windows. Anybody know of any online or free download for Mac?

I'm doing a presentation, and I'd like to include a bar graph of world population trends. I created a bar chart to show the data, but I need the x-axis to be "to scale", asin, have the correct amount of space between the bars. This is it so far: [URL] I need the gap between "Year 1" and "Year 1500" to be 1500 years! Not the same distance between the year 2006 and 2009, if you get what I mean?

Does anyone know if you can label axis in excel 2008? I know before SP1 it couldnt be done, just wondering if anyone has come across this in the to SP1? Or it can be done already? Because its pretty useless for me without that feature!

I have a Macbook Pro with OS X Lion. I want to reinstall Lion without losing my data. I dont have a TimeMachine or backup hard disk. Can the Command+R option with Reinstall thing will wipe my data ? Is there a way so i can have a fresh OS X Lion and and preserve my files ?

I'm looking for a simple software to burn blu-ray data. I already have the external drive. And no, I'm not looking into burning a blu-ray movie. This is just for data, aka a UDF disc. I know Toast, but I'm not too keen of spending that much money just to get a seemingly simple task.
