Dear experts,

I am preparing a free fall software using ejs, but the scale of kinematical grafics have a 10^(-2) factor on time axis.

My code is in attach.

Cheers,
Wallace Barbosa

Wallace,

Is your code attached? I don't see it.

for y vs t graph

input X = t

input Y = y

for vy vs t graph

input X = t

input Y = vy

previously your model was input X = t*0.01 thus it is out by a factor of 0.01 i also posted here

Wallace,

I just run your example. What is the problem?

The plotting panel tries to display the ticks on the axes automatically. When the limits are too big, instead of writing 1200, it uses exponential (scientific) notation and writes 1.2 x 10^3.
In order not to repeat the 10^3 for each tick, it writes it only once in one corner.

Is this what you mean?

Students should get used to this...

Francisco,

you do not really understand, but lookang managed to solve my problem in the previous post. I am very grateful for your help.
