Semilog (applied to a graph) means that one scale is logarithmic, the other not. The prefix "semi-" means "half" or "partially". The scale that is not logarithmic is, of course, linear.

A linear graph. As opposed to a logarithmic scale graph.

is this linear or logarithmic reduction

The y-axis on a semi logarithmic chart is exponential. This way, when an exponential function is depicted in the chart, it will evolve as a linear function. You often do this to proove that the function is exponential and/or as a tool to help you find the equation for the function. For more see: http://www.answers.com/topic/semi-logarithmic-plot

To be a linear equation, the equation must be set equal to Y. Also, it can't have any square roots, or any variables on the bottom of a fraction. In general, the terms of a linear equation must be either first-degree polynomials with respect to the variables, constants, or products of the two. This disallows terms involving trigonometric, logarithmic, exponential, hyperbolic, and power expressions (except for the power of 1) and their inverses.

i believe it is linear

Logarithmic will give a more define shape of the graph

None. If you have an exact relationship - whether it is linear, polynomial, logarithmic or whatever - probability has no role to play.

Yes, if you are talking about the normal carbon composition types having colour codes. But there are some non-linear types too.

You can get semi-log or log-log graph paper. In the first, the horizontal axis is linear while the vertical axis has a logarithmic scale. You can always use the paper sideways so that the horizontal is logarithmic and the vertical linear. The second type has both axes with logarithmic scales. Alternatively, you calculate the appropriate values and plot the results using the usual Cartesian coordinate system.

Which frequency? Frequency in Hertz can be accepted as linear frequency. What is non linear is usually the method of "presenting" it, like a non linear logarithmic scale. Also there is the matter of angular frequency defined as w = 2*π*f, where f is linear frequency (Hz or s^-1).

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

There are many equations that are neither linear nor quadratic. A simple example is a cubic equation, such as y = x3, or a logarithmic equation, such as y = ln(x).

On a logarithmic scale for luminosity, it is quite close to a negative linear relationship.
