Google Adds Graphing to Search

From Sam Laird –


Graphing Comes to Google:

Google has added graphing functionality to its seemingly ever-growing list of search bar capabilities, the company announced Monday in a blog post.

Now, when users type in a function — for example: sin(x) — the first search result will be an interactive graph allowing users to explore different related values for x and y.

Users can also plot multiple functions by separating them with commas. The new feature is available in most browsers and “covers an extensive range of single variable functions including trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic and their compositions,” writes Google engineer Adi Avidor.
