What I would like to know is how this normalized log-law eqn....u+ = (y+ / k) + c gets plotted in a u v/s. y plot, not u+ v/s. y+......and also if I could get a plot of our well known turbulent and laminar profiles on the same plot, it would be very helpful because I want to compare all the three....for ex:- which one stays up or goes down for how long.....Please assume any relevant value for k and c above to give me this plot ?

just assume to know u_tau and the viscosity of the fluid, you can transform the laws (u+,y+) in (u,y)...
