## Description

The data visualized in the plot represents energy consumption over a specified time period, comparing two scenarios: before and after certain design changes. X-axis (Time): The horizontal axis represents time in hours, spanning from 0 to 10 hours. Y-axis (Energy Consumption): The vertical axis represents energy consumption. The energy consumption values are calculated based on the functions E(t) and E_prime(t). Plot: Two lines are plotted on the graph, each representing energy consumption over time for a different scenario: Before Changes: This line represents energy consumption before the design changes. It is calculated using the function E(t). After Changes: This line represents energy consumption after the design changes. It is calculated using the function E_prime(t). Legend: The legend on the plot indicates which line corresponds to each scenario: "Before Changes" and "After Changes". Title: The title of the plot is "Energy Consumption Before and After Design Changes", providing a clear indication of what the plot represents. Gridlines: Gridlines are added to the plot for better visualization and reference. Overall, this visualization allows for a comparison of energy consumption trends before and after the implementation of design changes, providing insights into the effectiveness of the changes in managing energy consumption over time.

## Steps to reproduce

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import numpy as np # Energy consumption functions def E(t): return np.sin(t) + 5 def E_prime(t): return np.sin(t) + 4 # Time range t = np.linspace(0, 10, 100) # Energy consumption over time plt.plot(t, E(t), label='Before Changes') plt.plot(t, E_prime(t), label='After Changes') plt.xlabel('Time (hours)') plt.ylabel('Energy Consumption') plt.title('Energy Consumption Before and After Design Changes') plt.legend() plt.grid(True) plt.show()
