Dont know how to make a plot using for loop

1 view (last 30 days)
so i have to create a plot that relates a set of variables against a time variable, but for that i need a for loop, because it has to go through multiple numbers, but i can code the for loop part.

It depends on how your time and data are stored, but you can always use the hold command to sequentially add plots in a for loop:
for (i = 1:10)
hold on;
plot(t, data(:,i));
hold off;

As per my understanding, you wish to plot a set of variables against time axis.
Assuming 't' contains the time data and the gathered data pNN50_1 is a 1D array, you can directly plot as shown below:
plot(t, pNN50_1);
If pNN50_1 is set of variables or a 2D array you can use either of the below methods:
hold on
for i=1:length(t)
plot(t,pNN50_1(:,i)); %use plot(t,pNN50_1(i,:)); if data is present in rows
hold off
plot(t,pNN50_1); %the plot contains one line for each column in " pNN50_1”
% if data is present in rows, use plot(t,pNN50_1');
Refer to the below documentation for more information on “plot” function.
Hope this helps!
