Each axis needs to be labelled with all the quantity and the units (if any). Scale aspects must certanly be placed on devices, never to rates or quantities, making use of the preferred SI prefixes for multiples and sub-multiples (read Appendix A). Including, an axis showing lengths starting from 0 to 120 mm ought to be labelled:
and never length, m × 10 3 or size × 10 3 m.
When non-dimensional quantities were plotted, it is unclear to use a level consider the axis label. For instance, if an axis are labelled p × 10 3 , it is not clear whether p has already been increased by 10 3 , or whether lots review through the graph needs to be multiplied by 10 -3 . (más…)
