## How do you plot error bars on Originlab?

Method 1 – Preset Plot Designations

- Set up your worksheet so that the columns are designated Y1, yEr1, Y2, yEr2, Y3, yEr3… (the error bar column must be to the right of the Y data column).
- Select both your Y data and your error bar data.
- Choose your 2D plot (e.g., scatter, line + symbol, column/bar) or 3D XYY plot.

### What do standard error bars mean?

Error bars are graphical representations of the variability of data and used on graphs to indicate the error or uncertainty in a reported measurement. Error bars often represent one standard deviation of uncertainty, one standard error, or a particular confidence interval (e.g., a 95% interval).

## How to plot error bars with MATLAB error bar?

errorbar (x,y,yneg,ypos,xneg,xpos) plots y versus x and draws both horizontal and vertical error bars. The yneg and ypos inputs set the lower and upper lengths of the vertical error bars, respectively. The xneg and xpos inputs set the left and right lengths of the horizontal error bars.
