Plotting a stream function in matlab
How does one do this?
I am trying to plot PSI = Acos(6x)Uy where A=1 and U=1 over an x range of 2000200 and y from 20002000 My code is this and it is giving me an error. x = 2000:1:2000; y = 2000:1:2000; si = zeros(x,y); for x = 2000:1:2000 for y = 2000:1:2000 si(x,y) = cos(6*x)y; end end plot(si) Thanks for any help

What is the error?
I am not sure what you are trying to do here. Are you trying to make a 3D graph of cos(6*x)  y over x = [2000,2000] and y = [2000,2000] ?

I never used Matlab, but from the error description
Quote:
for x = 0:1:4000 for y = 0:1:4000 si(x,y) = cos(6*(x2000))(y2000);

In MATLAB arrays always have a lower bound of 1. Your for loops have to be adjusted. Also I think contour() is more suitable instead of plot(). Then you can specify the x and yaxis units.
