# IPython Notebook for turning in solutions to the problems in the Essentials of Paleomagnetism Textbook by L. Tauxe

## Problem 1

``````

In [18]:

from IPython.display import Image   # this is how you display images in your notebook.
Image(filename='ps6_prob1.png')

## Problem 2a

Start by modifying the function dir2cart from Problem set # 2:

``````

In [19]:

``````

Read in the datafile 'demag.dat' in the Chapter_6 folder in the data_files/Essentials_Examples directory that comes with the PmagPy distribution. Copy that folder into the directory with you notebook in it.

``````

In [4]:

import numpy as np
# first print it out so you can see what is in data....
# Put Temperature in Ts and Ints, Decs Incs into their own lists
# check whether you should transpose data to make that easier.

``````

## Problem 2b

For this we just have to normalize the intensities by the first step and re-run dir2cart.

``````

## Problem 2c

Now plot X and Y components versus Temperature

``````

In [6]:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
%matplotlib inline
# plot Temperatures on the X axis and X on the Y axis.
# Then do the same (using different symbols) for Y on the Y axis.
# add labels for the X and Y axes.
