Draw the horizontal axes

The code in Listing 23 draws a set of horizontal axes on the MyCanvas object, one for each trace that will be plotted on the object. These horizontalaxes are shown in Figure 1 and Figure 5 .

Plot the points

Listing 24 shows the beginning of the code that is used to plot the data values stored in the array that was created in Listing 22 .

Listing 24. Beginning of code to plot the points.
if(sampleCounter>0){ for(int cnt = 0;cnt<= sampleCounter; cnt++){//Compute a vertical offset int yOffset =(1 + cnt*(sampSpacing + 1)/ this.getWidth())*traceSpacing;

Listing 24 begins by testing the value of the sample counter to make certain that there are some points to be plotted. If so, it enters a for loop to plot each data value stored in the array. Because it uses the value ofthe sample counter to terminate the for loop, only those data values that have been stored in the array object will be plotted, even if thearray object isn't full.

A vertical offset

The data values in the array are to be plotted on one or more horizontal axeson the page. Therefore, it is necessary to first determine where on the page each data value is to be plotted. The code in Listing 24 uses various pieces of information to determine the vertical location of the axis against which eachdata value will be plotted.

Draw an oval

The code in Listing 25 draws an oval centered on the sample value to mark the sample on the plot. It is best if the dimensions of the oval are evenlydivisible by 2 for centering purposes. Otherwise, the ovals may appear to be a little off center.

Listing 25. Draw an oval.
g.drawOval(cnt*(sampSpacing + 1)% this.getWidth() - ovalWidth/2,yOffset - (int)data[cnt] - ovalHeight/2,ovalWidth, ovalHeight);

Is positive vertical up or down?

Normally vertical coordinates increase going down the screen in Java graphics. However, this isn't what most of us are accustomed to seeing when weplot data. We prefer to see increasing vertical coordinates going up the page. The code in Listing 25 reverses the sign on the data values to cause positive data values to be plotted above the axis and negative data values to be plottedbelow the axis. Increasing values go up. Decreasing values go down.

Connect the points with straight lines

The code in Listing 26 connects the sample values with straight lines. Care is taken to avoid drawing a line from the last sample value on one trace to thefirst sample value on the next trace. That would really be ugly.

Listing 26. Connect the points with straight lines.
if(cnt*(sampSpacing + 1)% this.getWidth()>= sampSpacing + 1){g.drawLine( (cnt - 1)*(sampSpacing + 1)%this.getWidth(), yOffset - (int)data[cnt-1], cnt*(sampSpacing + 1)%this.getWidth(), yOffset - (int)data[cnt]); }//end if}//end for loop }//end if for sampleCounter>0 }//end overridden paint method}//end inner class MyCanvas }//end inner class Page}//end class PlotALot01

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.

sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
