# Difference between revisions of "Type 9"

## In general

Type 9 is "general determinant" nomograph that has functional relationship:

$\begin{vmatrix} F_1(u_1[,v_1]) & G_1(u_1[,v_1]) & H_1(u_1[,v_1]) \\ F_2(u_2[,v_2]) & G_2(u_2[,v_2]) & H_2(u_2[,v_2]) \\ F_3(u_3[,v_3]) & G_3(u_3[,v_3]) & H_3(u_3[,v_3]) \end{vmatrix} = 0.$

This is the basic building block for line nomographs. Notation $u[,v]\,$ is to be understood such that if v is defined´, a grid is constructed for the row, otherwise a normal scale with variable u.
