MATLAB Need help with integration and plotting

  1. Apr 2, 2012 #1
    I have been trying to integrate an equation and then plot the result using matlab but haven't figured out how to do it. Say, I have an equation of the form dy = (1/x)dx. I want to integrate the above equation and then plot y as a function of x. So, to integrate I do this:

    syms y x
    LHS = int(1,y);
    RHS = int(1/x,x);

    So, now LHS and RHS contain the corresponding results of the integrals. How do I plot y as a function of x?

    Thanks in advance.

    It would be better if you could use the following equation instead of the one written above: (1/y)dy = dx. Now, how do I plot y as a function of x after integrating?
