  • * Click on the actual “chart”
  • * Click OK

Two screens will “pop” up. A chart with graphs and an excel spreadsheet

***** Make sure to continue to SAVE your work!!!!

Step two

Using the excel spreadsheet, create the categories and series, depending upon your information.

  • * You can use your SPSS output data (mean scores) to input data
  • * For example, if you have a table with the following information:
Descriptive statistics for hispanic students taks mathematics passing rates by year
School Size M
Very Small Schools
2003–2004 77.60
2004–2005 76.41
2005–2006 79.02
2006–2007 83.00
2007–2008 83.13
Small Schools
2003–2004 81.71
2004–2005 79.30
2005–2006 81.94
2006–2007 84.26
2007–2008 85.22
Large Schools
2003–2004 84.71
2004–2005 81.27
2005–2006 83.34
2006–2007 85.80
2007–2008 86.53
  • √ Decide which variables will be the categories and series (the categories will be the title that appears under the graphs&the series will be the key).
  • √ Begin filling in your columns and rows in the excel file.
  • √ The first column will be, using the table information above, will contain the years.
  • √ The second column will be Very Small Schools, the first grouping cited in the table above.
  • √ This is handled by highlighting each cell and typing the information within the cell, as shown in figure below
  • * The illustration below demonstrates step by step how you can fill your columns/rows
  • * The first row would be filled (using the table 3 information above) with the very small schools first
  • * The graph to the right will instantly appear as you type in the numbers in the row (see arrows)

  • * Next, insert Column "C" with the title "Small School" and insert data (as illustrated in Table 3):
  • * The graph to the right will instantly appear as you type in the numbers in the row (see arrows):

  • * Next, insert Column "D" with the title "Large School" and insert data (as illustrated in Table 3):
  • * The graph to the right will instantly appear as you type in the numbers in the row (see arrows):

  • √ You can also make your cells larger or smaller by placing your mouse between the cells until you are able to move the lines over:

  • √ You can switch back and forth from the excel spreadsheet to the chart, using the tabs on the bottom of your excel sheet

After inputting your information, your chart will resemble the following:

Step three

If you decide to change the color of your chart:

  • * You must be at your chart and click on the actual graph (this will make Chart Tools appear above in the option area)
  • √ Go to Chart Tools
  • * Design
  • * “Chart styles”
  • * “Change Chart Type”
  • * Click the down arrow, which will give you many different options
  • * Highlight a chart style

If you decide to change your chart layout :

  • √ Chart Tools
  • * Go to Tab designated “Design”
  • * Chart layouts (not to be confused with tab titled “Layout”)
  • * Click the down arrow, which will give you many different options

Make sure that your cursor is within the actual graph so that chart tools appear. The chart tools will only appear if your cursor is within the graph that you are trying to change.

If you decide to change your design to a different chart:

  • √ Chart Tools
  • * Design
  • * Go to Change Chart Type (furthest left hand icon)

Make sure that your cursor is within the actual graph so that chart tools appear. The chart tools will only appear if your cursor is within the graph that you are trying to change.

  • * Choose a different design (your data will transfer to another design)
  • * You can scroll down to choose a different design
  • * Click on design
  • * Click on OK
  • * You can now change color, arrangement of bubbles, using the same steps as mentioned above

If you decide to insert a title at the top of the figure.

  • √ Chart Tools
  • * Design

  • * Go to Change Chart Layouts (not to be confused with tab titled “Layout”)

  • * Click the down arrow until you see the graph with the “Title”
  • * This will give you many different options for titles and graph layouts

  • * Click on to Graph section titled Chart Title to enter your new title.

  • * Enter the title of your graph

In APA 6th edition style, you will need to type Figure 1. (if the first figure) and a longer title for the figure immediately below the graph.

Jeffrey Reply
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?
is it a question of log

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
Prasenjit Reply
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.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
