If you're talking about a graph then here's your answer... There are to axis's the x axis (horizontal) and the y axis (vertical). So your talking about the vertical scale so since a graph is shaped like an L the vertical part would contain the scale (numbers along the side) so that you can read a bar graph easier

a scale with diffrent numbers

On a vertical axis you should label it the "y-axis". Then make sure to put the numbers needed on the line! :)

the thing that you are measuring is usually plotted on the Y axis . the X axis is usually time scale

It is zero at the origin, positive above and negative below. Otherwise it can be numbered to any scale.

One axis (usually the vertical axis) is on a log scale, the other is a linear scale.

It represents the fact that a small change in the variable which is plotted on the horizontal axis with the given scale, is associated with a large change in the variable potted on the vertical axis with its scale.Note that the steepness can be changed by simply increasing the scale factor on the horizontal axis or decreasing it on the vertical axis.
