Use results of a 'for' loop to formulate a vector

  1. Mar 10, 2013 #1
    I would think this should be an easy one...

    For i=0 to i=M, I want to run a a calculation and get M different results. I want to store those M results as a vector so I can plot them.

    Simplify version below:

    for i=0:10
    T = i/2;

    This spits out a list of numbers: 0, 0.5, 1... How do I store that list as a vector and plot it?

    It depends what language you are using as theres differences between them and how they handle vectors and what graphing options they have.

    I think I got it now:

    T1 = [1:5];
    for i=1:5,
    T1(i) = i^6;
    T2(i) = i^.01;
    plot (T1)

    Now I just need to figure out how to plot two vectors on top of each other in different colors, but I think I should be able to get that part from the help. Thanks for the response.
