Introduction to MATLAB and MATLAB Scripting

Plotting using Matlab

  • Plotting is done to visualize the data
  • Plotting can be done from measured data or from an equation or from simulation
  • Types of Plotting are

           a) XY Plot

           b) 2- dimensional plot

          c) 3 - dimensional plot

Plotting Examples

  • Line plots are used to represent a function of one variable

             %Illustration to plot

            %%%%%%%%

            X=-1:0.1:2;

           Y=humpchanged(X);         %User defined Function

           plot(X,Y);

          

Two dimensional Plots

  • Two dimensional plots are used to represent a function of two variables

t=0:0.01:1;

y=sin(2*pi*t);

y1=cos(2*pi*t1);

kk=y.'*y1;

Three Dimensional Plots

  • Three dimensional plots are used to represent a function of three variables
