I have a function of temperature, and I am asked to do the following:

"Plot it in logarithmic scale as a function of the logarithm of temperature"

3. The attempt at a solution

Does this mean I just make the horizontal axis, T, a logarithmic numberline?

Or do I have to actually plot my function f(T) as f(ln(T)), and just have relatively small numbers on the x-axis numberline?

While the second option seems toliterallybe what the question is asking me to do, I don't see the point! You loose the ability to see T on the x-axis! (Instead you see numbers for ln(T) which is not intuitive) Both plots look basically the same, so why would the question ask me to do the latter option??

Thanks!
