Show how to make a plot that has equal aspect ratio
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

t = np.arange(0.0, 1.0 + 0.01, 0.01)
s = np.cos(2*2*np.pi*t)
plt.plot(t, s, '-', lw=2)

plt.xlabel('time (s)')
plt.ylabel('voltage (mV)')
plt.title('About as simple as it gets, folks')

plt.axes().set_aspect('equal', 'datalim')
