how can i adjust y-axis scale of 'semilogy' function

173 views (last 30 days)
I want to set y scale from 10^(-2) to 10^7 following problem.
x = 0:0.1:10;
y = exp(x);
figure
semilogy(x,y)
But as you can see this shows only from 10^0 to 10^5 for y-axis. How can i change this?

By default, plot (or any other plotting command) adjusts the y-axis limits to fit the data "compactly". However, you can override this behavior, and adjust the limits using ylim command.
In your example, we can add the following command to fit the y-limits.
ylim([10^(-2) 10^7])
Hope this helps!
Thanks,
Prasanth
