Mathematica plot

  1. Sep 19, 2010 #1
    I would like to generate a plot displaying the parameter t on the x axis, varying from 0 to 0.95 and the corresponding values of e1. My code below does what I want (I think) but is plotting all the different points on different graphs (all 950 of them!). How can I get it to plot on the same graph? Thanks

    For[i = 0, i ≤ 950, ++i,
    ListPlot[e1 /. NSolve[{equ1 == 0, equ2 == 0, equ3 == 0}
    /. t -> i/1000.0, {e1, e2, e3}]]]

    Make your table of values first, then use ListPlot.
    With out details of your code (or, better yet, a simplified example that shows the same issues) it is not worth trying to give you working code.

    As an aside: don't use For[] unless you really need to test for some condition to end the loop. It's probably best to use Do[] or Table[] for the above type of problem.
