Mathematica: How to change units od axis

  1. Apr 9, 2012 #1
    Hello,

    I would like to know, how can I change units showed in axis. I would like to change those relative units (20000, 40000...) to μm. The conversional relation is 50 = 1μm, so instead 20000, 40000 i would like to have 400μm, 800μm. I enclose picture where it should be more clear what I am trying to achieve.

    Thank you very much for your help

    You can set thick manually:
    e.g.

    Code (Text):
    Plot3D[Sin[(x y)/10], {x, 0, 100 Pi}, {y, 0, 100 Pi},
    Ticks -> {{{0, "o"}, {100, "1m"}, {200, "2m"}, {300, "3m"}},
           {0, 100 Pi/2, 100 Pi}, {{-1, "A"}, {0, "B"}, {1, "C"}}}]
