I believe you set your log plot to a natural log scale compared to LogPlot which is a common log scale....try putting
Log[10,C[t]] and {Log[10,10], Log[10,100]} in your g2 definition and now compare g3 with g4....I think you will see they are identical.

Dear Steve Christensen,
I should like to post the following question to the Mathgroup. I am
relatively new with Mathematica and I encountered a problem..
Dear MathGroup,
I should like to demonstrate some transformation rules graphically using
Mathematica extended capabilities. However, the simplest example failed:
Let assume a simple exponential function with real parameters:
C1[t_] := C0*Exp[-kel*t]
param = {C0 -> 100, kel -> 1}
we can plot the function easily:
g1 = Plot[C1[t] /. param, {t, 0, 2}, PlotRange -> {{0, 2}, {10, 100}}]
We can also make a half- logarithmic plot:
g2 = Plot[Log[E, C1[t]] /. param, {t, 0, 2}, PlotStyle -> {RGBColor[0, 0, 1],
Dashing[{0.05, 0.05}]}, PlotRange -> {{0, 2}, {Log[10], Log[100]}}]
In addition we can convert the y-axis to a logarithmic one:
g3 = Show[g2, Ticks -> Join[{FullOptions[g2, Ticks][[1]], FullOptions[g2,
Ticks][[2]] /. {x_, y_Real, len_, style_} :> {x, Exp[y], len, style}}]]
We can obtain a half-logarithmic plot by using the LogPlot function:
<< Graphics`Graphics`
g4 = LogPlot[C1[t] /. param, {t, 0, 2}, PlotRange -> {{0, 2}, {10, 100}}]
Now I would expect that plot g4 and g3 become identic:
Show[{g3, g4}, PlotRange -> All]
But it is not the case. I am sure that there is something wrong. Any help
would be appreciated.
With best regards
Gy. Csanady
