It is usual to plot the values of the dependent variable on the y-axis. That is what you measure when you change something else, the independent variable.

The x values are on the horizontal axis and the y values are on the vertical axis.

On whichever variable is considered the y-variable. It would be the second element of each ordered pair of data points.

In general, y-axis values are the values that depend on the x-axis values.

The x values are on the horizontal axis and the y values are on the vertical axis.

you put nothing on the y axis because dis isn't like a coordinate graph

A Coordinate Graph is a graph which has a x and y axis for you to plot

You generally plot a graph of Voltage v/s Current (with voltage on Y axis and current on the X axis). The graph will not be a straight line.

The y variable! It may be one of the dependent variables.

It could be a velocity graph or an acceleration graph. If the plot is a straight line it is constant velocity. If the plot is a curve it is acceleration.
