Convert y-axis from feet to meters

 Hello, so I have my y-axis in feet and I want meters instead. Is there any way to do it without changing actual equations?

Is there any > way to do it without changing actual equations? Greetings from the beginning of the Alaska Highway (and a chilly -33C outside). A program that has been around UN*X for ages, is 'units'.  It has many conversion factors in it, and there are even ways to coax things like temperature and temperature difference into these conversions. Looking in a search engine, I see that octave has a way to access the Gnu units program and data. That would seem to be the most robust method to me. There are some measurements that I think units won't work with.  The one that comes to mind is a fracture toughness measurement which involves square root meters. It may be that the help within octave for this octave-forge package is sufficient for you to figure things out.  If not, someone will probably write better instructions than I can.

Re: Convert y-axis from feet to meters

 In reply to this post by miroslav Dear MK, The axes know nothing about the units you are using. You can just change the y tick labels to the values in meters Example: assume you have a ROW vector "y_meters" with the values in meters ytxt = strsplit (num2str (y_meters)); set (gca, 'yticklabel', ytxt); _______________________________________________ Help-octave mailing list [hidden email] https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/help-octave
