Graph Of The Exponential Function - HP F2226A - 48GII Graphic Calculator User Manual

Graphing calculator.

Note: When you press J , your variables list will show new variables
called @@@X@@ and @@Y1@@
Press ‚@@Y1@@

to see the contents of this
variable.
You will get the program <<
X 'LN(X)' >> , which you will
recognize as the program that may result from defining the function 'Y1(X) =
LN(X)' by using „à. This is basically what happens when you @@ADD@! a
function in the PLOT – FUNCTION window (the window that results from
ñ, simultaneously if in RPN mode), i.e., the function gets

defined and added to your variable list.
Next, press ‚@@@X@@@ to see the contents of this variable. A value of 10.275 is
placed in the stack.
This value is determined by our selection for the
horizontal display range. We selected a range between -1 and 10 for X. To
produce the graph, the calculator generates values between the range limits
using a constant increment, and storing the values generated, one at a time,
in the variable @@@X@@@ as the graph is drawn. For the horizontal range ( –1,10),
the increment used seems to be 0.275. When the value of X becomes larger
than the maximum value in the range (in this case, when X = 10.275), the
drawing of the graph stops.
The last value of X for the graphic under
consideration is kept in variable X. Delete X and Y1 before continuing.

Graph of the exponential function

First, load the function exp(X), by pressing, simultaneously if in RPN mode, the
left-shift key „ and the ñ (V) key to access the PLOT-FUNCTION
window. Press @@DEL@@ to remove the function LN(X), if you didn't delete Y1 as
suggested in the previous note. Press @@ADD@! and type „¸~x` to
enter EXP(X) and return to the PLOT-FUNCTION window. Press L@@@OK@@@ to
Next, press, simultaneously if in RPN mode, the left-shift key „ and the
ò (B) key to produce the PLOT WINDOW - FUNCTION window.
Change the H-View values to read:
H-View: -8

by using 8\@@@OK@@ @2@@@OK@@@. Next, press @AUTO. After the vertical range
is calculated, press @ERASE @DRAW to plot the exponential function.
