        I need to plot an Integral, that i need to solve numerically. I need to plot 10Log10[x] versus result of integral. If i plot

      Plot[nIntegrate[<my func here, in x>],{x,100,1,-1}]

   is easy, but the plot is wrong. i need to do 10Log10 of x, not only x. But if i plot

      LogLinearPlot[nIntegrate[<my func here, in x>],{x,100,1,-1}] the plot is a Log in x, but the values that appear isn't in log...How can i do this? i search alot in google, in help, in anywhere...What i'm doing wrong?

 Thanks a lot


Hi, Breno,
it is quite unclear what do you want and what is your problem. If you need to plot an indefinite integral,
let us see.
Assume that you need to integrate a Gaussian curve (e.g. Exp[-x^2]. The result is known, it is 1/2 Sqrt[\[Pi]] Erf[x]):
Evaluate these operators:
g[x_] := Integrate[Exp[-x^2], x]
Plot[Evaluate@g[x], {x, 1, 100}]
LogLogPlot[Evaluate@g[x], {x, 1, 100}]
LogPlot[Evaluate@g[x], {x, 1, 100}]

Is its what you need?
Best, Alexei
