Labeling your graph

Mathcad provides several ways to help you to identify what it is that you’ve plotted. You can choose to display: • A title, either above or below the graph. • Axis labels to describe what’s plotted on each axis. • Legends to identify the individual traces. • Arguments showing what you typed into the x-…

Formatting individual curves

You can reformat the traces on your graph, using the Traces page of the dialog box for formatting X-Y graphs. • Click in the graph to select it. • Double-click in the graph. Alternatively, choose Graph~X.Y Plot from the Format menu. Mathcad displays the dialog box for formatting X-Y graphs. • If necessary, click the Traces tab…

Formatting the axes

You can reformat your graph’s axes, using the X-Y Axes page of the Formatting Currently Selected X-Y Plot dialog box. To change a graph’s format: • Click in the graph to select it. • Double-click in the graph. Alternatively, choose Graph=:}X-Y Plot from the Format menu. You’ll see the dialog box for formatting X-Y plots. • If…

Graphing data

You don’t have to use Mathcad to generate the vectors that you plot, as was done for the example in Figure 20-5. You can create vectors by reading in data from a data file, by pasting in the data from the clipboard, or by typing data directly into an input table. These techniques are described in Chapter…

Graphing functions

Each trace on a graph depends on a range variable, and Mathcad graphs one point for each value in the range variable. As mentioned in the previous section, however, Mathcad automatically generates a default range for the dependent variable of an expression you type in the y-axis and creates the graph over it if you do not explicitly define…

Mathcad graphs are both versatile and easy to use. To create a graph, click where you want to insert the graph, choose Graph-e-X. Y Plot from the Insert menu, and fill in the placeholders. You can modify the format extensively, including reformatting the axes and curves and using a variety of different types of labels The following sections describe…
