# MATLAB: 100 element vector between A and B

• MATLAB
• TheFerruccio
In summary, MATLAB is a high-level programming language and interactive environment used for numerical computation, visualization, and programming in scientific and engineering fields. To create a vector with 100 elements between two values, you can use the "linspace" function. Accessing elements in a vector is done through index values, and mathematical operations can be performed using built-in functions and operators. To plot a vector, the "plot" function can be used with the x and y values to create a line plot.

Is there a quick way to define a vector with 100 elements going between two different values?

I know of just using division and using that as a step size, but it would be nice if there was something quicker.

Code:
help linspace

Thank you very much for the help! That is exactly what I am looking for.

## 1. What is MATLAB?

MATLAB is a high-level programming language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. It is commonly used in scientific and engineering fields for data analysis, simulation, and data visualization.

## 2. How can I create a 100 element vector between two values in MATLAB?

To create a 100 element vector between two values, you can use the "linspace" function in MATLAB. It takes in three arguments: the starting value, the ending value, and the number of elements you want in the vector. For example, to create a vector between 0 and 10 with 100 elements, you can use the command "linspace(0,10,100)".

## 3. How do I access the elements of a vector in MATLAB?

You can access the elements of a vector in MATLAB by using their index values. The first element in a vector has an index of 1, the second element has an index of 2, and so on. You can also use the colon operator to access a range of elements in a vector. For example, if you have a vector called "myVector", you can access the first element using "myVector(1)" and access the first five elements using "myVector(1:5)".

## 4. Can I perform mathematical operations on vectors in MATLAB?

Yes, MATLAB is designed for numerical computation and has built-in functions for performing mathematical operations on vectors. You can use operators such as addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (*), and division (/) to perform arithmetic operations on vectors. You can also use functions like "sum", "mean", and "std" to perform more complex operations on vectors.

## 5. How can I plot a vector in MATLAB?

To plot a vector in MATLAB, you can use the "plot" function. This function takes in two arguments: the x-values and the y-values to be plotted. If you have a vector called "myVector" with 100 elements, you can plot it using the command "plot(myVector)". This will create a line plot with the index values of the vector on the x-axis and the corresponding values on the y-axis.
