# y axis multiplied with 10^-6 factor and this factor shown at the top of axis

I want to have y-axis ticks something like 1,2,3,4 but at the top of axis 10-6 should be shown in plot. This means that every tick say 1 is nothing but 1 10^-2 and 2 mean 2 10^-6 and so on. How to do this in mathematica? I use updated latest version

• How about using Ticks and AxesLabel in Plot? – Mauricio Fernández Jan 23 '16 at 15:11

Example solution

Plot[
10^(-6)*x^2
, {x, 1, 3}
, Ticks -> {Automatic, Table[{10^(-6)*i, i}, {i, 0, 10, 2}]},
AxesLabel -> {, "10^(-6)"}]
