Let f(x) be a function.
In the above function, if we want to do vertical expansion by a factor of k, at every where of the function, y co-ordinate has to be multiplied by k.
Then, we get the new function
g(x) = kf(x)
The graph of g(x) = kf(x) can be obtained by expanding the graph of f(x) vertically by the factor k.
It can be done by using the rule given below.
Note :
Point on the original curve : (x, y)
Point on the curve after it is vertically expanded (stretched) or compressed by the factor of k :
(x, ky)
Let f(x) be a function.
In the above function, if we want to do vertical compression by a factor of k, at every where of the function, y co-ordinate has to be multiplied by 1/k.
Then, we get the new function
g(x) = (1/k)f(x)
The graph of g(x) = kf(x) can be obtained by compressing the graph of f(x) vertically by the factor k.
It can be done by using the rule given below.
Note :
Point on the original curve : (x, y)
Point on the curve after it is vertically compressed by the factor of k :
(x, (1/k)ky)
Example 1 :
Perform a vertical expansion by a factor 2 to the function
f(x) = x^{2}
And also write the formula that gives the requested transformation and draw the graph of both the given function and the transformed function
Answer :
Step 1 :
Let g(x) be a function which represents f(x) after the vertical expansion by a factor of 2.
Since we do vertical expansion by the factor 2, we have to replace x^{2} by 2x^{2} in f(x) to get g(x).
Step 2 :
So, the formula that gives the requested transformation is
g(x) = 2x^{2}
Step 3 :
The graph g(x) = 2x^{2} can be obtained by expanding the graph of the function f(x) = x^{2 }vertically by the factor 2.
(x, y) -----> (x, 2y)

Example 2 :
Perform a vertical compression by a factor 2 to the function
f(x) = x^{2}
And also write the formula that gives the requested transformation and draw the graph of both the given function and the transformed function
Answer :
Step 1 :
Let g(x) be a function which represents f(x) after the vertical compression by a factor of 2.
Since we do vertical compression by the factor 2, we have to replace x^{2} by (1/2)x^{2} in f(x) to get g(x).
Step 2 :
So, the formula that gives the requested transformation is
g(x) = (1/2)x^{2}
Step 3 :
The graph g(x) = (1/2)x^{2} can be obtained by compressing the graph of the function f(x) = x^{2 }vertically by the factor 2.
(x, y) -----> (x, (1/2)y)
