I am plotting x-y plot using plot function. I want to set only y-axis as log scale and x-axis as linear? How to do that? I used loglog function but it scales both axis but I want only Y.

The best way to create that type of axes is to use the semilogy function. Alternatively, you can set the ‘YScale’ property on the axes:
set(gca, 'YScale', 'log')

You are correct, it should have been division not multiplication.
