# How to plot one column in Python? Explain in details with example.

There are several libraries in Python that can be used to plot data, such as Matplotlib, Seaborn, and Plotly. In this example, we will use Matplotlib, which is a popular data visualization library in Python.

Here is an example of how to plot a single column of data using Matplotlib:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

# Create some data
x = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
y = [2, 4, 6, 8, 10]

# Create a figure and axes
fig, ax = plt.subplots()

# Plot the data
ax.plot(x, y)

ax.set(xlabel='X axis', ylabel='Y axis', title='Example Plot')

# Show the plot
plt.show()


In the above example, we first import the Matplotlib library and give it the alias “plt”. Next, we create some data in the form of two lists, “x” and “y”, which we will use to plot the graph. We then create a figure and axes, which will be used to display the plot.

The plot() function is then used to plot the data. We pass in the x and y data that we want to plot. The set() function is used to add labels and a title to the plot. Finally, we use the show() function to display the plot.

You can also specify the kind of plot you would like to make, for example line plot, scatter plot, bar plot etc.

ax.bar(x, y)


This will create a bar plot of the data.

You can also plot one column of data from a DataFrame using the same method. Here is an example using a DataFrame from the pandas library:

import pandas as pd

# Create a DataFrame
df = pd.DataFrame({'x': [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], 'y': [2, 4, 6, 8, 10]})

# Create a figure and axes
fig, ax = plt.subplots()

# Plot the 'y' column
ax.plot(df['x'], df['y'])


In this example, we first create a DataFrame with the data we want to plot, and then use the plot() function to plot the ‘y’ column against the ‘x’ column.
