Plotting Data

ListPlot, PieChart, Histogram, Barchart, etc

The next command uses Mathematicas Integrated Data Resources, it will not retrieve the data unless you have an active internet connection



Here is a list of properties that we can access from ElementData



However, one should always question the provenence and accuracy of data... Let's make a sanity check: the stable phase of carbon at STP is graphite which is hexagonal (but not close packed).




We create a list of the densities of the first one hundred elements. Data that is missing is reported with Missing[NotAvailable] or Missing[Unknown].



The data can be plotted with ListPlot





To join the data, one can use either ListLinePlot or use the Option "Joined → True" in ListPlot.




To see the data, we use the PlotMarkers Option.
