14:440:127 2D Plots What do you need? - X points - Y points >> xpoints = linspace(1,10,20); >> ypoints = rand (1,20)*10; Obviously size(x)==size(y) has to be true, so that you can have corresponding points. Now Plot! >> plot (xpoints, ypoints) 4 returns a vector of rand om numbers of size ( rows , cols ) from 0 to 1
14:440:127 >> xpoints2 = 1:5:50; >> ypoints2 = x .^ 3; >> plot (xpoints2, ypoints2) >> title ( ʻ X Cubed! ʼ ) >> xlabel ( ʻ X points ʼ ) >> ylabel ( ʻ Y points ʼ ) >> grid on 5 Only if you want to have a grid look, otherwise, the plot will be on a white background

14:440:127 Multiple Figures Sometimes, you need to visualize data in different windows, but at the same time, so you must create the Fgure separately and THEN plot. fgure (1) plot (xpoints, ypoints) fgure (2) plot (xpoints2, ypoints2) 6 If you want to overwrite a plot, simply use the Fgure ʼ s number: fgure (1) plot (xpoints2, ypoints2)
14:440:127 Multiple graphs in ONE fgure - Method 1 >> x1 = 1:0.1:10; >> x2 = 1.5:0.1:10; >> y1 = 3*x1 .^ 2; >> y2 = 3.5*x2 .^ (1.5); >> plot ( x1 , y1 , x2 , y2 ) 7 But we need to distinguish between the two, so we can use legend to distinguish. legend ('frst line', 'second line')

14:440:127 Multiple Graphs in ONE fgure - Method 2 >> x1 = 1:0.1:10; >> x2 = 1.5:0.1:10; >> y1 = 3*x1 .^ 2; >> y2 = 3.5*x2 .^ (1.5); >> plot (x1, y1) >> hold on >> plot (x2, y2) >> hold oFF 8 However, the legend command does not work too well.
14:440:127 Common Error Suppose you have your X and Y points and you do the following: plot (x) % OR plot (y) This will work, but it is wrong if you are trying to plot y against x. It works because: this plots x OR y against their indices Example: x=1:2:10; 9 1 3 5 7 9 the values in x 1 2 3 4 5 indices of the elements in x

14:440:127 Subplots To create the fgure on which to plot using subplot you must frst defne the size oF this fgure, in other words, how many slots to plot on. Syntax: subplot ( rows , columns ) Examples: subplot ( 2 , 2 ) subplot ( 3 , 4 ) subplot ( 3 , 1 ) 10 loc=1 loc=2 loc=3 loc=4 loc=1 loc=2 loc=3 loc=4 loc=5 loc=6 loc=7 loc=8 loc=9 loc=10 loc=11 loc=12 loc=1 loc=2 loc=3
14:440:127 Subplots >> x = linspace(0,10,100); >> y1 = x; >> y2 = x.^2; >> y3 = x.^3; >> y4 = x.^4;
