How to have logarithmic bins in a Python histogram?

We can set the logarithmic bins while plotting histogram using plt.hist(bin="").


  • Create an array x, where range is 100.

  • Plot a histogram using plt.hist() method. We can pass logarithmic bins using logarithmic bins that returns numbers spaced evenly on a log scale.

  • Get the current axes, creating one if necessary and set the X-axis scale.

  • To show the figure, use method.


from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

x = np.array(range(100))

plt.hist(x, bins=np.logspace(start=np.log10(10), stop=np.log10(15), num=10))
