Graphs. Easy

  1. Mar 25, 2010 #1
    Hi, I am doing a graph on a lab. However, I do not know what information goes where. I have a maximum friction force and normal force from my observations. The sheet tells me to make a maximum friction force vs. normal force graph. Does this mean maximum friction force is on the x-axis and the normal force is on the y-axis?

    When you plot "Something" vs. "Something else", the convention is that "Something" is the vertical axis or ordinate and "Something else" the horizontal axis or abscissa.
