I have a table of data with multiple rows and columns, and I have to make a versus data table using two of these columns. Essentially, I have to set one column of data (column 3) as the y-axis and another column of data (column 5) as the x-axis. How do I accomplish this?
Assuming the name of the table is
The 3rd column would be data[[All,3]] and the 5th data[[All,3]].
There are many plot functions in Mathematica. In this case,
There are many, many options to tune those plots. I suggest looking up those in the extensive electronic documentation in the Help menu or by selecting a command and pressing F1 (Windows)
Things to look up:
Let's create a dataset consisting of $x$, $x^2$, $\sin(x)$ and $\exp(x)$.
Now let's plot $\exp(x)$ over $x^2$.
The intuitive way of doing this is extracting two separate lists from the dataset, namely the second and fourth columns, by using
The output of both of these is exactly the same:
A value table for this can be displayed in a similar way, using
It hasn't been mentioned yet, so: the Statistical Plots package features the function
Here's a sample:
