**Logarithmic plots** (or log plots) are plots that use a logarithmic scale. A logarithmic scale shows the value of a variable which uses intervals that match orders of magnitude, instead of a regular linear scale. There are two types of logarithmic plots. The log-log plot employs logarithmic scaling on both axes and is represented in matplotlib by the `matplotlib.pyplot.loglog()`

function. The semi-log plots use linear scaling on one axis and logarithmic scaling on the other axis. These plots are represented in the matplotlib API by the `semilogx()`

and `semilogy()`

functions. On log-log plots, power laws appear as straight lines. On semi-log plots, straight lines represent exponential laws.
