# Question:Logarithmic mode for plot

## Question:Logarithmic mode for plot

Maple 2015

The scale of vertical axis is logarithmic and function in each interval must be linear. When I use the command " mode=log " the shape of lines are deformed into curves, however when I use the command " curve ", the shape of lines remains straight. I can use right-click for changing mode to logarithmic scale but is it possible to use label font for vertical axis as well as size, resolution and other options in the command "curve" ?

Thanks alot

restart; with(plottools):

SN := curve([[3, (4.566256-4.544647)/(4.544647)], [4, (4.544933-4.544647)/(4.544647)], [5, (4.544653-4.544647)/(4.544647)], [6, (4.544649-4.544647)/(4.544647)], [7, 0]]): PLOT(SN);
