I want to do the calculations in the for loop for each diameter, D value, and then draw the graph for each result, but with this code, I calculate one value and only one value appears in the graph. Where am I doing wrong? Sorry I'm beginner in mtlab

As a general guide have a look at:
L=(2000+(5*50));
T=5+5*0.25;
It=0.0075*L;
ht=0.15*T;
bt=0.50*It;
e=0.0003*(5+50);
t=15000/sqrt(9.81/ht);
V=It*ht*bt;
flwrt=V/t;
iteration=1;
for D=0.1:0.01:0.5
v=4*flwrt/pi*D;
Re=(v*D)/0.00000131;
if Re<2300
disp('It is laminar flow')
elseif Re<4000
disp('It is transitition')
else
disp('It is turbulant flow')
end
valvecost=320+(D/25)*200;
elbowcost=60+((D/25)*50);
pipecost=((2000+(5*50))/25)*1,5;
f=1.325/(log10(e/D*3.7+5.74/Re^0.9));
hp=5+5*0.25+(v^2)/2*9.81*[f*(2000+5*50)/D+8.1];
Ppower(iteration)=((9.81*1000*flwrt*hp)/1000);
pumpandmotorcost=3700+100*ht;
electricitycost=(0.15*(t/3600)*Ppower);
yearelectric=electricitycost*730;
htVals(iteration)=ht;
iteration=iteration+1;
end
plot(0.1:0.01:0.5,htVals)
hold on
plot(0.1:0.01:0.5,Ppower)
If you wish to retain the other loop variables from each iteration (valvecost, elbowcost, pipecost etc.) you will have to adopt a similar strategy tothat of Ppower.
