 1 How to Use Semilog Graph Paper In semilog paper the -axis is marked off so that the height represents the log of the C value to be graphed. If you look at a semilog graph you'll notice that the horizontal lines are not drawn at even intervals, they start out sort of spread apart then get closer and closer until, bing! , they jump and are spread out again, and the same process repeats. In this way the graph is broken up into . Each cycle has 10 lines (counting the lines it shares with the cycles cycles immediately above and below.) Semilog Graph (3-cycles) The bottom line is the for the base line first cycle, each line corresponding to the bottom line is the base line for the cycle above it. The base lines are those where the spaces just below are small and those immediately above are big. Each base line always represents a power of 10, that is for some "! 8 whole number . (The power, , can be 88 negative or zero.) For example the first line stands for 1 or or or 1000, . .. or one of "! "!! 1, 0.1, 0.01, 0.001, . .. (20 is a power of 10). not The next base line is labeled 10 the times bottom line, and each base line is always 10 times the preceding base line. In each cycle, the line immediately above the base line represents the base 2 times line, the line above that the base line, 3 times etc. In a cycle all the lines correspond to multiples of the base line. So, for example, if the bottom line is labeled 10 the next line would be 20, then 30, 40, 50, until 100 ( ), which is the base line for next cycle; then œ"!‚"!
