A linear scale is a scale with equal divisions for equal vales, for example a ruler. A non linear scale is where the relationship between the variables is not directly proportional.

Non-linear.

You can measure things with a linear scale. Practically impossible with a non-linear scale.

The answer depends on the nature of the graph. If it is linear it will simply change the slope. If it is non-linear, it will change the shape. It also depends on what changes are made to the scales on the axes.

A linear relationship whose graph does not pass through the origin: for example, the relation between temperatures on the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales.

which obey ohms law ANSWER: Not all potentiometers are linear some are made to follow a logarithm function some follows an exponential function. A linear potentiometer will have a linear curve. Materials that obey Ohm's Law are called 'linear' or 'ohmic'; those that don't are called 'non-ohmic' or 'non-linear'.

linear: LINE example--- line non-linear: not a LINE example--- parabola The other possibility is a graph with a non-linear scale. First a linear scale will have each unit represent the same amount, regardless of where you are on the scale. A semilog scale, has a linear scale in the horizontal direction, and a logarithmic scale in the vertical direction. Exponential functions (such as ex & 10x), will graph as a straight line on this type of graph scale). A logarithmic or log-log scale, has logarithmic scales on both horizontal and vertical axis. Power functions (such as sqrt(x), x2 and x3), graph as a straight line on these scales. See Related Link

No, but it is non-linear.

Non-linear.

It is possible to give an example of non-linear, but I have no idea what a non-example is. Is a non-example of linear a curve. That would be my first thought but not sure
